Northwestern participates in 2010 College Art Gallery Collaborative Fall Art Tour
Oct. 4—Northwestern is one of eight colleges/universities participating in the 7th Annual College Art Gallery Collaborative Fall Art Tour on Friday, October 15 from 5–9 p.m.
Northwestern’s Denler Art Gallery will open the exhibition All or Nothing in conjunction with the tour.All or Nothing explores the extremes of compositional and conceptual possibilities, while intentionally leaving out the middle. The images and objects curated into this exhibit help us understand pictorial extremism: full or empty, ornate versus plain, horror vacui in opposition of austerity.
In reflection of so many bifurcated approaches to contemporary thinking, these works present a suite of formalist explorations of the poles and their antipodes. By adopting clinical posture to these explorations, All or Nothing provides a neutral forum for the cacophony of these radical positions.
Curated by Kjellgren Alkire and Luke Aleckson, the exhibit presents presents work from both emerging and historically established artists, including Mel Bochner, Charles and Ray Eames, Syke Gilkerson, Richard Mock, Gabor Peterdi, Kelley Walker and others.
This free “neighborhood” gallery crawl is open to the public and includes exhibition receptions, refreshments, music and free shuttle buses.
The following colleges and universities are participating in this year’s crawl:
College of Visual Arts
St. Catherine University
Katherine Nash Galley, U of MN
University of St. Thomas
Shuttles begin at 5 p.m. and arrive every 20 minutes. A map of shuttle routes and school locations is available online. Find out more about the art crawl and participating schools.
This collaborative gallery crawl is made possible with the support of the Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities (ACTC) Academic Deans and by the Twin Cities Fine Arts Organization (TCFAO).
