(RE)VISIT: INTERPRETING THE COLLECTION

COLLEGE ART GALLERIES & KENDERDINE ART GALLERY

JANUARY 29 - APRIL 29, 2016

CO-CURATORS: KENT ARCHER, LEAH TAYLOR

OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 2016 AT 8:00 PM

RECEPTION WILL BE HELD IN THE COLLEGE ART GALLERY, LOWER LEVEL

(re)visit: interpreting the collection creates new dialogues between works by examining their underpinnings within historical movements and contemporary concepts, addressing specific ideologies such as utopias, automatism, figuration, the everyday and suprematism. (re)visit invites the viewer to reconsider the works within these ideological frameworks. The inclusion of documentary film, archival documents and a reading room, aims to evoke critical dialogue by highlighting cross-connections and counterpoints found in the collection.

This exhibition also serves as a marker to celebrate the 10- and 25-year anniversaries of the College Art Galleries and Kenderdine Art Gallery, respectively.
