Will Rogan: Turning moments into memories, moment, after moment, after moment…
April 23 - May 14, 2005
opening reception: Saturday, April 23rd, 6:00 - 9:00pm

The Jack Hanley Gallery in Los Angeles is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Bay Area artist Will Rogan.  Rogan has become known for his photographs of “found situations” in the urban landscape in which everyday materials become sculptural.  For his new exhibit Rogan culls from an incident which occurred 50 years ago in Alabama, when a woman, Ann Hodges, was hit by a meteorite.  Using this event as a metaphorical springboard, Rogan addresses the day-to-day in the wake of extraordinary circumstances.  The exhibit will include photographic, video, sculptural and mixed media pieces.


Will Rogan’s work has been exhibited at DUMBO Art Center in Brooklyn, the Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art in Florida, Gasworks Gallery in London, and in San Francisco at the Museum of Modern Art, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, the Lab and Southern Exposure.  In 2002 Rogan was a recipient of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s SECA award and in 2004 he was awarded a fellowship by the Program for Media Artists.
