“It’s Personal,” featuring zines, books, and more. On view from February 8 – March 15, 2019.

In “It’s Personal,” the artists use the unique qualities of sequencing, format, and multiples that zines and artists’ books allow as way to explore and share with a wide audience their interests, perspectives, longings, and questions.

The exhibition will run from February 8–March 15, 2019, with an artists’ talk in the Special Collections Research Center of Fenwick Library on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 at 3:00pm.

Kate Fitzpatrick: Asemic Manuscript opens February 9

Deconstructing traditional writing systems and letter forms, artist Kate Fitzpatrick invents her own written language as meditation. The work unveils a realm of streaming consciousness, forming a mantra of the artist, while the structure of the page invites the viewer to search for the familiar and reflect on the unknown.

On display now through March 16, 2018. Join us on Wednesday, March 7 for an artist’s talk with Fitzpatrick and curator Jennifer Lillis. Learn more and see a full artist’s statement on our Exhibits page.
