Sheila C. Johnson Design Center
Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery
June 16–September 7, 2011
Opening reception: June 16, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Curated by Silvia Rocciolo, Eric Stark, and John Wanzel
looks at the daily lives of art objects and examines the role of an art
collection within a university setting. The exhibit will showcase newly
acquired work, expose works rarely seen due to fragility, scale or subject
matter, and début a newly restored mural from the 1930s. By making the unseen
process of managing an art collection transparent, this exhibition will
investigate the larger question of institutional memory, legacy, and identity.
Included in the exhibition are works by Larry Bell, Clegg and Guttman, Camilo
Egas, Shirin Neshat, Roxy Paine, Peter Saul, Richard Tuttle, and Carrie Mae Weems.
