Installation for “Deconstruct/Reconstruct” December 13, 2010

This morning I worked together with students in my ARTS 314 Advanced Drawing class to install their exhibition “Deconstruct/Reconstruct” in the gallery. Students included Eliza Tibbits, Jacob West, Ali Crank, Yoojin Chung, Sophie Wang, and Serena Eastman. We quickly deinstalled the previous exhibition and worked together to curate the layout of the exhibition. Our primary concern in terms of layout was to balance between the color and black and white, as there were varying degrees of color throughout all of the works.  Many of the pieces in the exhibition had multiple images, so we had to consider that as well when thinking about where to place specific works. You can view all of the images of the exhibition on the Jewett Gallery’s Flickr page.

Today’s post is a guest blog post from Photography 208 Professor Christine Rogers. Her class put together the current exhibition in the gallery “Look at Me”, which has an opening reception this Thursday, Feb. 4, 4:45-6pm.

Now that the show is hung on the wall I can’t help but be so proud of and inspired by my students from the Fall Photography 208 class. This show emerged out of a class assignment to curate themselves into a show. I wanted this to be a learning experience and for them to put together something that they could be proud of and they felt was representative of their work as individuals and as a group. The first phase was brainstorming and trying to come up with a theme to connect the projects. The second phase was to revisit the theme idea and instead organize the show visually and (somewhat conceptually) as throughout the semester projects evolved and the themes no longer felt appropriate.

Hanging the work on the wall was another phase of the curatorial process as we discovered last week. We stuck to the original map that we made in class but we had to edit heavily as there was more work than we had wall space. Ultimately this was for the best as these decisions helped to create a stronger final show where the viewer can spend time with each edited body of work as well as look at this as a cohesive show.

Thank you again to everyone who came out to help hang the show: Ji, Cecilia, Olivia, Sarah, Shannon, EB, Rayla, Eleri, Shirley and Emily. For those students who are studying abroad this semester, we will miss you on Thursday and we hope you like the installation!

We completed the finishing touches on the student photography exhibition “Look at Me”. The last tasks to be done in a gallery show are usually the wall labels for each individual work and the vinyl letters of the exhibition title.  Below are installation views of the exhibition.

Join us for the opening reception on Thursday, Feb. 4, 4:45-6pm.  RSVP on our Facebook event page.  View more photos of the exhibition on our Flickr page.

Installation for “Look at Me” January 28, 2010

Yesterday we began installation of the student photography exhibition “Look at Me”. The show is curated, selected and designed by Christine Rogers’ Fall 2009 Photography ARTS208 class. The various projects in this diverse class create an exhibition that is divided into three related categories: “People”, “Changing Perspectives” and “Reality vs. Pretense”.

Join us for the opening reception on Thursday, Feb. 4, 4:45-6pm.  RSVP on our Facebook event page.  View more photos of the installation in progress on the gallery’s Flickr account.

One of the most important parts of the installation was selecting which works would be installed in the gallery.  Each student had several photographs from their final project.  Together Christine and the students worked to balance the quantity of the works based on spacing in the gallery. Ultimately, the decision leaned towards having fewer works in the gallery to avoid over saturation of the gallery space.
