Everyone Wants a South Facing Window

Lauren Iacoponi
MFA Thesis Exhibition

May 1-5, 2018

Lauren Iacoponi co-founded Unpacked Mobile Gallery with colleague Shane Bowers this past year due to a growing interest in different models of mobile museums and galleries for contemporary art. Those who founded Unpacked wanted to mobilize in a literal way – bringing their vision out into the world and into different communities. Unpacked expands the domain of what is conventionally considered an appropriate space to showcase art - the bed of a moving truck. Unpacked's installation sites vary from the typical museum/gallery context, by traveling to public and institutionalized locations on university campuses, art districts, museums, and public parks. Each install presents its own concepts on diverse subject matter. Iacoponi's installation art featured in Everyone Wants a South Facing Window creates a complex indoor environment that engages viewers in an actor-participant role.



Everyone Wants a South Facing Window focuses on themes of repetition and fixation. Iacoponi's thesis work applies serial composition, reference to the body, and a blurring of the boundary between painting and sculpture, utilizing artwork to shape the viewer's spatial environment. The installation of wax stacks within the truck bed of Unpacked creates engagement with the physical-phenomenological dimensions of space, body and self.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.
