Repetition: unoriginal, complementary, boring, comforting, mechanical, symptomatic, habitual, universal. These are just some of the associations commonly attached to repetitive actions and images. In an attempt to engage with and challenge these widely held assumptions, this exhibition displays works from the Grinnell College Art Collection that approach repetition from diverse and refreshing perspectives. InRepeat, Reveal, React: Identities in Flux, curators examine the ways in which art contributes to the construction of identities and the role that repetition plays in this process. Viewers are encouraged to reflect on the works and ideas presented—and react. A catalog accompanies the exhibition.This exhibition is the eleventh in a series of triennial exhibitions organized by student curators from the Grinnell College Department of Art’s Exhibition Seminar.  The Fall 2009 seminar included: Thomas Bateman ’10, Madeleine Cargas ’10, Caitlin Deutsch ’12, Nora Frazin ’10, Erika Graham ’10, Caitlin Hawley ’11, Rebecca Park ’10, Katherine Robbins ’10, Courtney Sheehan ’11, Maya Ruiz-Stanbary ’11, and Amanda Underwood ’10. The Exhibition Seminar was directed by Associate Professor of Art Jenny Anger.
