For the past several years, Andrew Kaufman has been exploring the concept of containment, as well as the tangential ideas of breach and contamination, in a multiplicity of forms that range from painting to installation. Rather than engage with narrative, Kaufman's work seeks to embody these concepts by co-opting their structures, and utilize cultural signifiers that intrinsically allude to the body.

This exhibition, developed by Assistant Professor of Theatre Craig Quitero, invites visitors to cross the boundary between spectator and spectacle and participate in the creation of art. The exhibition encourages visitors not only to "see art" but also to "be art," as they stage images and photograph them in the surreal installation space. This is an exhibition of inclusion, a cutting of the red ropes that separate art from life, a celebration of art as action. The Grinnell College Department of Theatre and Dance will stage two performances in the space.
Los Infrahumanos: The Sub-humans: Linocuts by Antonio Frasconi
Curated by Grace Withmory '13
December 3, 2012 - December 21, 2012
Burling Library Print and Drawing Study Room
From a young age, South American artist Antonio Frasconi created work with social and political themes. Like many young socialist Uruguayans, Frasconi looked at the United States as a model. The race riots of June 1943 in Detroit, however, shocked and empowered him to create a portfolio of linocuts entitled Los Infrahumanos ("The Sub-humans"). In these prints he depicts the experience of African Americans and the progression of the way they were treated in the United States. This work was first displayed in a socialist gathering place, however, they were soon taken down after others felt it dangerous to criticize their allies in wartime. This exhibit incorporates this work as well as the letter he wrote to Richard Wright asking for advice. The response he received inspired Frasconi to continue his response to social concerns as well as influenced the format of his work to focus on a theme or a written text and create a sequence in either a portfolio or book form. Curated by Faulconer Gallery Intern Grace Withmory '13.
