Memphis College of Art Announces Alexander Paulus Exhibition

MEMPHIS, Tenn.—Memphis College of Art announces the opening of its newest alumni exhibition, Space Is The Place, by Alexander Paulus on May 29. The exhibition will run until Aug. 3 in the Alumni Gallery of Rust Hall.

Paulus earned an MFA from Memphis College of Art in 2009 and a BFA from Southeast Missouri State University with an emphasis in painting in 2003. He is currently an instructor at Southwest Tennessee Community College.

For Space is the Place, Paulus has drawn inspiration from diverse sources. “This work takes the theories of ancient aliens, mythological gods and modern-day science and smashes them all together,” said Paulus. “The purpose of this is to further confuse future generations as to what present-day humans believe is the origin of our existence.”

Rust Hall’s Alumni Gallery is open 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
