EXPANDING EXHIBITIONS RESIDENCY
Residents: Gavin Park & Kristina Vannan
Part exhibition framework experimentation, part interface design interrogation, Establishing a Database Connection investigates how the digital file database of the Leonard & Bina Ellen (LBE) Gallery’s collection can be activated beyond the pure intention of data preservation and storage.
This residency, in partnership with the Departments of Art History and of Design and Computation Arts, was made possible by the generosity of art historian Reesa Greenberg.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS:
Deadline for submissions: February 17, 2020 at 5:00 pm
The Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery is currently accepting project proposals from students in the MFA Studio Arts and the PhD Humanities programs for its annual exhibition IGNITION. This event provides the opportunity for students to present their recent research in the context of a professional gallery with a national and international profile. The work in collaboration with the gallery’s team to develop an exhibition that critically explores questions related to each one’s artistic practice.
Ashley Raghubir is this winter’s curatorial intern. Ashley’s primary research interest is Afrofuturism in contemporary art, an emerging movement which holds great potential for explorations and assertions of black identity and experience. Speculative imaginings of future worlds offer the opportunity to both reflect on past and present conditions of oppression, as well as envision more equitable and liberatory futures. Relatedly, her curatorial interests are public programming as research and pedagogy and critical curating based in social justice and activism.
