“Take the Back Roads and Collect Myself,” is a multi-media solo exhibition consisting of drawings, paintings, signage, posters, video, sculpture, installation and live performance.

 

The works included in this exhibition are taken from phase one of Beverly Fresh’s “Outskirts” series, which took place in eleven towns in rural Illinois and Michigan. “Outskirts” utilizes performance as a means of inquiry, combining documentation, intervention and fabrication to examine how collective meaning is produced, consumed and shared throughout the rural Midwest.

Emphasizing the significance that oral tradition has in shaping and sharing cultural meaning, the performances combine song, dramatic narrative, and jokes. The work in this exhibition draws from a stylized autobiographical viewpoint that ranges from innocence to irreverence and builds upon the tradition of the trickster navigating a journey that could be read as a postmodern tale of the picaresque. Spanning a variety of media, the work critically inquires into the extracurricular activities and places that define the physical and psychological landscape of the peripheral Midwest.

On September 19 th Beverly Fresh will perform “MR. MDW$T (Revisited)” a thirty-five minute performance which deviates from a traditional fixed point of view and draws from first hand experiences on the road gathering everything from regional slang to hog calling as source materiel. Building on the tradition of the “one man show,” this live performance aims to both entertain and challenge the audience.
