Awkward Other Party
February 18 – April 3, 2015
Opening reception on February 18 at 4:30 p.m.
A collection of artworks by artists Rita Crocker and Leejin Kim fill the Schiltkamp Gallery this spring. Examining culture and language across the transnational frame, the artists' work reveals the anxiety that accompanies assimilation, language learning, socializing, negotiations and even partying. Observing the awkwardness of trying to fit in, they investigate the discomfort and confusion of cross-cultural relationships. Crocker draws from her experiences of travel and repatriotism and Kim from Korean and Korean-American pop culture.
Playing With Rules: Drawing on the Spirit of Sol LeWitt
February 26 – May 25, 2015
Opening reception on February 26 at 4 p.m., Higgins Lounge at Dana Commons
In honor of artist Sol LeWitt's dedication to the act of artistic creation as a form of play, the Higgins Lounge will be the site of a wall drawing produced by students in Toby Sisson's course, The Expanded Mark: New Strategies in Drawing. Executed over several weeks the drawing will take shape line by line, the product of a collaborative experience. This site-specific artwork will reference the geometry of Dana Commons' midcentury architecture while reminding us of the human activity that takes place within its space.
