An exhibition of “handmade” poster designs and artists’ books by the seniors and juniors in the Program in Visual Arts, curated by faculty member Pam Lins. An opening reception will be held Wednesday, February 7 at 5:00 p.m. in the Hurley Gallery, Lewis Arts complex. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
This show exhibits works from all the students participating in fall 2017 junior and senior seminar classes offered as part of the Program in Visual Arts.
The senior posters are a response to a project for the students in the Exhibition Issues and Methods Seminar to make a “handmade” poster while considering their upcoming spring thesis shows. The students determined what “handmade” could mean to them at this point in digital culture and gave them a chance to contemplate the history of artists producing their own visual aids in regards to their exhibitions. This class is taught by faculty member Pam Lins.
The Juniors are exhibiting books they made in the Issues in Contemporary Art class taught by faculty member Joe Scanlan. The books are produced around each student’s independent studio artwork, made over the course of the fall 2017. The show will also include an original artwork from each student. In the class, students view and study historical artists’ books in the Rare Book and Special Collections Library at Princeton University.
