Mellon Summer Intern 2015, provides insight into the exhibition Raging Through Time: The Art of David Wojnarowicz (6pm), followed by a tour of Abstraction Squared (6:30pm) by Betty Jarvis, Graduate Curatorial Assistant and MA Candidate in the Department of Art History at Rutgers.
7pm / Slide Jam Spencer Merolla explores the tension between private and public grieving behaviors, the material culture of mourning, and objects as repositories of memory, incorporating human hair, funeral clothes, and found photographs in her art. Ben Suga’s amorphous creations in clay and debris merge his background in indigenous materials and pottery with his interest in systems and man-made landscape transformation. The presentations are followed by an audience Q&A opportunity.
Complimentary Refreshments. Additional Menu Available for Purchase in PaparazZi Café.
