To make way for the Collections of Distinction exhibit from Special Collection Research Center, the Locale exhibit has temporarily moved to the hallway of the new addition on the first floor. Unfortunately, Mark Kelner’s piece So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past (50 copies of “The Great Gatsby” re-pulped, ink pigmented with graphite from the series, “Signs and Wonders”) had to be temporarily removed due to the fragility of the material and narrowness of the hallway. We will reinstall the exhibit in the Fenwick Gallery on Monday, April 4. Images of the new location can be seen below. You can visit the exhibit page for more information.
On September 30th, six artists and writers from the Call & Response 2015: Lineage Exhibition participated in a panel discussion moderated by M. Mack. The panelists discussed their collaborative process and experiences creating work for the show. The panel was part of the Fall for the Book 2015 programming.
This year’s panelists were:
Marcos L. Martínez
Nikki Brugnoli Whipkey
The Call & Response exhibit is a collaboration between writers and visual artists, in which one calls and one responds. The result is a set of paired works, resonating with each other, demonstrating the interplay of artistic media, and speaking of our times. Listen to audio recordings of select poetry from the Call & Response 2015: Lineage Exhibition below and read all of the writing from the Call & Response 2015: Lineage Exhibit in the Exhibition Catalog here.
