Upcoming Exhibitions

Lamont Gallery, Gillian Laub, Southern Rites
Southern Rites: Gillian Laub
October 25 – December 15, 2018

Reception: Thursday, October, 25, 5:30-7:30

Gillian Laub has spent the last two decades investigating political conflicts, exploring family relationships, and challenging assumptions about cultural identity. Her work frequently addresses the experiences of adolescents and young adults in transition who struggle to understand their present moment and collective past. In Southern Rites, Laub engages her skills as a photographer, filmmaker, storyteller, and visual activist to examine the realities of racism and raise questions that are simultaneously painful and essential to understanding the American consciousness. 

 

Southern Rites is organized by the International Center of Photography, New York. Lamont Gallery showing of Southern Rites is supported by Marina and Andrew E. Lewin ’77; P’07, P’10.

William Kentridge: Universal Archive
January 11 - March 9, 2019

Renowned South African artist, William Kentridge, shares new work inspired during the writing of his Norton Lectures delivered at Harvard in 2012. In this expanding series, a familiar personal iconography is revisited - coffee pots, typewriters, cats, trees, nudes and other imagery; an intimate thematic repertoire appearing in art and stage productions throughout the artist’s career. Meticulously based on ink sketches, over 75 linocut prints shift from identifiable subject matter to deconstructed images of abstract marks. 

 

William Kentridge: Universal Archiveis organized for tour by the Gund Gallery at Kenyon College and is made possible, in part, by contributions from Alva Greenberg ’74, the Gund Gallery Board of Directors and Ohio Arts Council.
