Description

University Libraries Present and Art in Focus exhibit and panel discussion, titled “One-of-a-Kind,” featuring senior seminar art projects.

 

“In the new technological age, the role of the library has changed with the rise of the Internet, E-books, Kindles, and other means of reading. Nevertheless, books have never failed to transport new ideas, relay messages, provoke thoughts, and challenge viewpoints. In this exhibition, “One-of-a-Kind,” I asked each student in the senior seminar class to expand their individual art practice and create a site-responsive work that is related to the function of the library as a beacon of knowledge, and a place for exploration. The artworks vary from bold graphic image to painting and printed work, sculptural alteration on books to subtle insertions of drawing inside the pages. These artworks are designed to provoke the library user’s interest and curiosity and encourage further exploration.” -Nobuho Nagasawa, Curator

 

Panel discussion with the artists: Monday, November 19, 2018, 4:00- 5:30 PM, Central Reading Room
