LINDSEY WHITE | MATTER OF FACT
December 15, 2012 - January 26, 2013
Opening Reception Saturday, December 15th, 4:00 - 7:00pm 

Eli Ridgway is pleased to present Matter of Fact, Lindsey White's second solo exhibition at the gallery. Through video, photography, and sculpture, White models a type of site gag index, working with the language of magic and comedy to challenge ordinary perceptions by presenting the unexpected and impossible. Like a good joke, her new work pits cartoonish occurrence against the mundane physicality of everyday life. Her exhibition is populated by perfectly broken windows, flawless spills, Hollywood props, dance strobes, and levitating fastballs that allow for an approachable entry point while initially masking the work's mischievousness and complexity. Both intimate and laughable, White's work exists in a world where life and art are clearly in slapstick harmony with one another.

Lindsey White is an Oklahoma native who lives and works in San Francisco, CA. She has exhibited in San Francisco at Eli Ridgway, Southern Exposure, New Langton Arts, and Headlands Center for the Arts, and nationally and internationally at the New York Book Fair, Aurora Picture Show in Houston, TX, and the Deadpan Exchange II Festival in Berlin. She was a 2010 Artist-in-Residence at the Headlands Center for the Arts and is a recipient of the 2008-2009 Fellowship at the Kala Institute of Art in Berkeley, CA. She is currently a finalist for the 2012 SFMOMA SECA Award and was also a finalist in 2010.

She received her B.F.A. from Pacific Northwest College of Art and her M.F.A. from California College of the Arts. White currently teaches photography and video at the San Francisco Arts Institute.
