"In This Corner: NMSU Faculty Exhibition 2013"
January 25-February 23 2013
All of the members of the NMSU Art Department faculty, and many of its staff, are practicing visual artists, and the triennial faculty exhibition allows us all to catch up with their careers and see what they are showing around the nation and the world. This time around, the participating artists were asked to either make a site-specific work for display in the UAG or to install their work in a manner that engages with the abundance of corners in the exhibition space. While the phrase "In This Corner" may conjure images of pugilists being announced at the beginning of a prizefight, the intentions of this concept were more intellectually refined than physically brutal. What, we wondered, might happen if an artist had to meld their practice with the actual architecture of the unique exhibition space of the UAG? In effect, this exhibition shows that these works don't only emphasize the junction of physical walls, but they also function as a metaphor that highlights the role of the UAG as a place where overlapping ideas, practices, media and materials come together, intermingle and entice.
Participating artists are all on faculty or staff at the NMSU Art Department, and included: Julia Barello, Gatis Cirulis, Tauna Cole-Dorn, Peter Fine, Lauren Greenwald, Adam Labe, Katya Reka, Rachel Stevens, Peter Svarzbein, Brett Thompson, Brian Widmaier, and Jean Reece Wilkey.
The exhibition concept was by Visiting Curator Linda Weintraub, who lectured at the HSS Auditorium on the NMSU campus on Thursday, January 24th at 6 p.m
9 November 2012 to 11 January 2013
