Opening Friday, May 10th, from 6PM - 8PM
On view through Thursday, June 13th
The Dittmar Gallery features Glossolalia, May 10 – June 13, a group exhibition showcasing the culminating work of this year’s senior class of Art Theory and Practice majors at Northwestern University. Featuring artwork by Madeline Amos, Kyle Frost, Audrey Haque, Jason Pan, Andrew Paulson, Harrison Shih, Laura Shultz, Judy Suh, Alaya Turnbough, Wendy You, and Crystal Zhang, the selections in this exhibition explore different modes of constructing meaning in contemporary art.
Glossolalia is imagined language. Like speaking in tongues, the works in this exhibition engage with existing dialogues about representation by isolating, abstracting, combining, and inventing new vocabularies. Though the artists differ in their approaches, their work collectively presents a play on and questioning of interpretation.
Glossolalia will be on view May 10 to June 13, 2013, in the Dittmar Gallery in the Norris Center at Northwestern University’s Evanston Campus. The opening reception is May 10, 6-8pm. Additional programing will be announced at a later date.
