The Robert A. Deshon and Karl J. Schlachter Library of DAAP is hosting Professor Mark Harris’s BFA “Topics in Contemporary Art-Art Criticism” class exhibit.
Professor Mark Harris writes this about the exhibit:
This display of artists’ books comes fromthe DAAP Library Special Collections. Last spring semester these books were selected by BFA students in my Topics in Contemporary Art—Art Criticism class for a writing assignment. Students were asked to select two books by different artists and write a 1,000 word evaluation and comparison. They were welcome to experiment with writing approaches. What you see here are short extracts from their essays.
The writing samples are by these students—
Sabrina Argotte,Sheridan Ave, Aliesha Caldwell, Trinity Campbell, Grace Casella, Katherine Donaghy, Sam Engel, Callie Gaines, Kat Hardy, Catherine Hummel, Vicky Lee, Nathalie Lorenz, Nicole Moore, Ashton Morris, Hugh Moscoe, Arisa Nakahata, Emma Schutte, Vidushi Shrivastava, Kara Yeomans
Professor Harris installed the exhibit with shelves askew and books displayed at haphazard angles, which makes the exhibit a colorful, jumbled visual delight. It will be up until October 20th, 2022; come and take a look.
