About

Public space has been vital to people and cities since ancient times as the designated space for dialogue, participation, collective activities, interaction and exchange, and essentially democracy. However, due to various social, political, and economic complexities, as well as technological advancements, public space has gradually transformed to less open, less democratic, less comfortable, less enjoyable, less “ours.” From one hand, codes, policies, and regulations reinforce limited use and accessibility, uncomfortable surfaces and furniture, and ubiquitous surveillance. From the other hand, the web culture has absorbed much of the dialogue and participatory practices that now occur more often in the digital realm. Public space is essentially not so “public” and not so “spatial.”

Christina Seely - The Hour of Land

Assistant Professor of Studio Art Christina Seely has work showcased in an exhibition of photographs in correlation with those curated into Terry Tempest Williams' new book The Hour of Land: A Personal Topography of America's National Parks that is up at EUQINOM projects in San Francisco.

"Part memoir, part natural history, and part social critique, this book is a literary celebration honoring the centennial of the National Park Service. This is a meditation and a manifesto on why wild lands matter to the soul of America and includes a collection of photographs evoking an emotional landscape in parallel with Tempest William's writings about each national park." (from Euqinom projects Gallery)

A reception that includes a reading by Terry and a panel discussion with Christina and other artists from the book will take place on June 8 from 6-8pm.

Enrico Riley '95 Wins Rome Prize

(Originally published in Dartmouth Now May 09, 2016 by Hannah Silverstein, MALS '09)

Associate Professor of Studio Art Enrico Riley ’95 has won a 2016 Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome.

Given annually to about 30 exceptional emerging artists and scholars from around the United States, the Rome Prize will provide studio space, lodging, and a stipend to allow Riley to spend close to a year living—and painting—in the Italian capital.

“The Rome Prize is a huge honor for Professor Riley,” says Barbara Will, associate dean for the arts and humanities. “It is a once-in-a-lifetime achievement, and a shining testament to his national and international reputation as a painter. We are thrilled to be able to share in his success.”

Christina Seely: Lux

For most of human history, man-made light has signified hope and progress. Co-published with the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Christina Seely’s Lux examines the contemporary disconnect between the beauty of the artificial light that emanates from the earth’s surface and the complexity of what this light represents. Made between 2005 and 2010, and titled after the unit for measuring illumination, the project focuses on light produced by 45 cities in the United States, Western Europe, China and Japan–the most brightly illuminated regions on NASA maps of the earth at night. These economically and politically powerful regions have the greatest impact not only on the night sky but also on the planet’s ecology. Seely’s portraits are less about the individual locations and more about the global ramifications of consumption, and for this reason each photograph is titled simply “Metropolis,” with a notation of the city’s latitude and longitude.

In Esmé Thompson’s paintings and multipanel wall reliefs the use of color and pattern create a dynamic and engaging viewing experience.  Colorful and bold, the paintings attest to a lifelong interest in decorative designs as diverse as those found in Islamic textiles and ceramic tiles to those of medieval paintings and illuminated manuscripts.  The Bowery Gallery announces the opening of an exhibition of Thompson’s new paintings. The exhibition will run from March 1 – March 26, 2016.  There will be an opening reception on Thursday, March 3 from 5:00-8:00 pm.
