SHAPESHIFTING: Contemporary Masculinities

Sussel Gallery
Burton D. Morgan Gallery

SHAPESHIFTING: Contemporary Masculinities brings together ten emerging and established artists who question, reframe, and explore perceptions and anxieties about evolving masculinities in the 21st century. The exhibition is intended to raise—but not necessarily answer—questions about topics such as the relevance of the historical male role model, the purpose of fraternity, and contemporary ideas about gender construction. 

       Artists in the exhibition include: Fall on Your Sword (Will Bates); Brooks Dierdorff; Marcella Hackbardt; Kris Knight; Robyn O'Neil; Sara Greenberger Rafferty; Michael Scoggins; Alec Soth; Hank Willis Thomas; and Weston Ulfig. SHAPESHIFTING was curated by Kitty McManus Zurko, CWAM Director/Curator. An exhibition brochure is available on the CWAM’s website.  

       The CWAM will be closed November 24–December 1, 2014, for the College’s Thanksgiving break. SHAPESHIFTING was organized by the CWAM in support of the College’s political science department’s Mentoring Conference for New Research on Gender in Political Psychology, and was funded, in part, by the Muriel Mulac Kozlow, Class of 1948, Endowed Fund.

FREE PLAY

Sussel Gallery
Burton D. Morgan Gallery

FREE PLAY explores the work of artists who borrow from play and games to reveal social, philosophical, and cultural issues. From playfulness to mathematical strategy, the artists in FREE PLAY mine the significance of games by reinventing them to create experiences meant to be involving to the viewer, while also reflecting on the nature of participation in art.

FREE PLAY is curated by Melissa E. Feldman, and organized by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York, NY.
