November 17, 2021
Katharine A Keller

Check out a webinar featuring work from the Cantor Arts Center and the Bowes Art & Architecture Library

Event Details:

Virtually join graduate student curator, Jennie Waldow, to discuss her online exhibition, Art/Object: Contemporary Works between Mediums. You will receive a Zoom Link for the event after registering on Eventbrite here.

We often categorize objects in an effort to make sense of them, but what if we aren't able to? Our online exhibition, Art/Object: Contemporary Works between Mediums, considers this question through works in the collections of the Cantor and Bowes Library that fall between the cracks of obvious medium categories. In this virtual presentation, graduate student curator Jennie Waldow will discuss how the editions, documents, posters, and invitations in the exhibition point to the way an artist’s practice often flows across media, with ideas or visual motifs explored through preparatory, experimental, and everyday formats.
