The New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art presents PullSpeedCrashPunch: An Exhibition About Violence October 1 through November 12. A reception for the artists will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, October 1, and is free and open to the public.

PullSpeedCrashPunch: An Exhibition About Violence presents the artwork of Antonio Martinez, Doreen Maloney, and Regina Mamou. These three regional artists are concerned with the nature of violence and how it appears in day-to-day life. In the show, curator Alison Erazmus comments on how, through the inundation of violent images in film, TV, and the internet, we become anesthetized to the violence in them. According to Erazmus, the artists appear in the work they produce, exploring "self-inflicted sensations of violence in order to challenge the violent spectacles brought into their lives through new media technologies."The videos and photographs in the exhibition explore the dangers and anticipated pain from car and motorcycle crashes the jolting images from martial arts, cagefighting and rodeos and the angst felt from memories of suffering and illness.

Mamou, a Chicago-based artist and Fulbright scholar, received a B.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design, and an M.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has exhibited around the world, including in Greece at the Kodra Visual arts Festival and at the Makan art Space in Amman, Jordan in a project called The Utopian Airport Lounge.

Martinez, an assistant professor of inter media arts at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, received his B.F.A. from Creighton University and an M.F.A. from East Carolina University. He recently exhibited his experimental video art project, Near the Egress, in several national and international film and video festivals in Portland, Oregon London, and at Optica- Festival Internacional de Videoarte in Barcelona, Spain.

Maloney, an associate professor of new/inter media at University of Kentucky, received a BA in German and Russian from Indiana University and several masters degrees, including an MFA from University of Wisconsin, Madison. Maloney has exhibited internationally, including in the Dallas Center for Contemporary Art, the Pompidou Center in Paris, France, and in the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, in Havana, Cuba.

The New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art is located at 506 Main Street in New Harmony, Indiana and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and Sunday noon until 4 p.m. For more information, call 812/682-3156 or visit www.nhgallery.com.
