2009-10 Exhibits


September 10-October 1

Residual Reality

Beginning with Robert Heinecken and Joyce Neimanas, this exhibition highlights a lineage of Artists, Mentors and Students who use photography to invent visual images that are not documents of the world. While they do deal with existence and observation of the concrete world, they use photography in ways that challenge process, rules and forms.

Art Faculty Show: Some of Our Own
Featuring the artwork of the Department of Art & Design studio faculty and recent alumni.

November 5-25

(re)Visions: (di)Visions
This exhibition explores the applications of collage/assemblage as both a formal and conceptual element in contemporary art. The work ranges in media and process to offer a current view of the additive and subtractive processes that combine, fragment and rejuvenate. Merging multiple parts, pieces and processes, the artists provide a new context for both image and object.
