Throw down with us on Friday evening September 8 for the School of Art Fall Art Extravaganza hosted by the Dodd Galleries! Join us as we celebrate four new exhibitions opening in the spaces in the School of Art gallery spaces. There will be a DJ and food trucks, and the event is free and open to the public.
The Dodd Galleries received a generous gift from alumnus Carol Lascaris to travel the exhibition Rosemary Mayer: Conceptual Work & Early Fabric Sculptures, 1969–1973 to the School of Art galleries in the fall of 2017. The exhibition traces the development of Rosemary Mayer’s work from text projects on paper to hand-dyed fabric sculptures and reproduces for the first time five process-based text pieces created by Mayer in 1969.
During the Winter Art Party Extravaganza on Friday January 27th at 7pm, the Dodd Galleries is premiering a new dance performance by CADEN:CE (Contemporary African Dance Ensemble : New Conscious Explorations). The performance piece was choreographed in response to Michi Meko's exhibition One Last Smile Before the Undertow which will open that evening. The work is an exploration of a ritual process of preparing to journey; the movers are always made aware of their temporary place in the world.
Katie Geha, Director of the Dodd Galleries in the School of Art, will travel to Nanjing, China to take part in organizing the 3rd Annual Nanjing Arts Festival held at the new Baija Lake Museum. The exhibition, which runs from November 12, 2016 to February 12, 2017 explores the theme “Historicode: Scarcity and Supply” and features over 315 artists selected from a panel of international curators.
