Filmmaker explores cultural identity using American imagery, iconography 

quid copper texture to celebrate and lament the American dream. Optical printing and chemical techniques give the video installation the fluid, 3-D quality and produce an old photograph effect from a future era.

Inspiration for "American Falls" came from Frederic Church's 19th-century painting "Niagara" and from WPA murals of the Thirties, Solomon said.

Also on exhibit at Untitled [ArtSpace] are colorful large-scale prints from collage and printmaking artist Robert Rauschenberg's "Soviet/American Array." Like Solomon's work, Rauschenberg's uses images to explore American identity. Both use collage to create conversation between images within each work.

Solomon's 30-minute, looped installation at Untitled [ArtSpace] is a preview of a larger video installation he is creating for the rotunda at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., which debuts in autumn 2009.

Admission is free. For more information, call 815-9995.
