Richard Ramos: Un|Rest

Un|Rest by Richard Ramos is a sculptural installation examining eight different aspects of the bed as a place or object where and with which human beings engage in activities including, but not limited to sleep. Issues involving social justice, mental health, vulnerability, illness and death will be addressed through the lens of common definitions and ideas about what a bed is.

PLATFORMS

PLATFORMS has transformed a formerly vacant, disused lot at 25th and Adams, and turned it into a vibrant, community-oriented performance and exhibition venue!

We’re programming sculpture, dance, photography, video, musical and literary performances on custom-built, 13′ x 13′ decks designed to offer a unique PLATFORM for local artists to mount their project.

Stanchions and chainlink panels provided by Weber County RAMP now allow us to mount exhibitions of 2D and installations/weaving.

Here’s what the community has to say:
