Over the past 15 months, I've been working on a project commissioned by the Minneapolis Institute of Art focusing on their American Period Rooms. The work, titled The American Period Rooms: Inside/Out, opens on April 2 and will be on view until October 30 in the Bell Court.
A recent New York Times article from February 12 highlights several of the museum's current and upcoming period room projects including my photographic project.
I am the recipient of a 2016 Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant. I will use the funding to continue work on my project Paul, based on my maternal grandmother's memories following World War II. I'm honored to be among a group of exceptional Minnesota artists.
A selection of prints from the series Occidente Nuevo is part of a three-person exhibition titled La Frontera/The Border in Gallery 101 at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. The other two artists included in this exhibition are Byron Brauchli and Laura Migliorino. The exhibition runs from September 2nd through October 8th with an opening on September 9th. Public lectures are planned for September 10th (Brauchli) and September 21st (Marchetti and Migliorino).
A selection of prints from the same series is also part of a two-person exhibition titled %Occidente Nuevo: Recycled Tijuana at Woodbury University's School of Architecture in San Diego, California. Migliorino is the other artist in this show. An opening reception and panel discussion is scheduled for October 23rd and the exhibition runs through mid-December.
