November 2, 2012 - December 16, 2012
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.

November 2, 2012 - December 16, 2012
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.
November 2, 4:15 – 6:00 p.m.
Refreshments will be served

Gallery Talk: Love Always: Josh Black
Tuesday, November 6, 4:15 p.m.
Artist Josh Black will address issues of personal growth and artistic process. His work, which often involves a combination of rigorous performance and a resulting sculptural object, can be considered a visual stage for introspection; a response to events he experiences. In conjunction with the Riverbed Theater, Black has constructed the piece, Blown Out, to address his personal relationship to this special state of Iowa.
