LOCHER + LOCHER: Brandon Locher and Olivia Locher at SPACE
812 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh PA : Exhibition Dates: March 22 - May 12, 2019
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and SPACE presents LOCHER + LOCHER, an exhibition of over 90+ works and hours of unseen VHS videos from siblings Brandon Locher and Olivia Locher. The Locher siblings were born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Brandon in 1985 and Olivia in 1990. Olivia moved to Manhattan in 2009 to pursue a BFA in Photography at The School of Visual Arts. Brandon and Olivia have shared an apartment in Manhattan since 2015 and closely observe, oversee, and assist with one another's work and practices. Olivia's colorful studio photographs are confrontational and often hilarious while raising a more serious point about politics and social conventions. While Brandon's monochromatic drawings each display a unique approach and convolution in their intricacies. This marks the Locher's debut solo exhibition showcasing their individual works paired together, side by side.
