Real Problems- Tommy Bruce M.F.A. Thesis Exhibition

March 28 - April 19, 2020


The virtual exhibition at GBTH comprises a 3D recreation of the gallery space at AC[2], including all exhibited works, modified for digital viewing. The exhibition will open with a virtual gallery reception on Saturday, April 18th, from 12pm–3pm SecondLife Time (aligns with PST). The reception will be open to the public and will feature live DJ sets and a gallery tour with the artist and interdisciplinary designer, Michael Fowler/Smoopa.

The exhibition can be found within SecondLife by searching GBTH in the locations tab, teleporting to the instance and following signage for the show.

Tommy Bruce announces an extension of his MFA Thesis work “Real Problems,” hosted at Grab By The Horns (GBTH), a virtual curatorial project by Marina Münter, presented in the online platform SecondLife. This adaptation comes in response to the postponement of his physical MFA thesis exhibition at AC[2] Gallery in Albuquerque, New Mexico, due to the COVID19 pandemic.

In "Real Problems" Bruce explores the blurring boundaries between IRL and virtual worlds through a new series of self-portrait, video and performance works. These works present Bruce's alter-ego (or ‘fursona’) Atmus, a white-tailed deer, as his primary subject. Atmus comes from Bruce's long-standing involvement in the subculture known as the Furry Community.
