The annual Brown Student Exhibition, now in its 35th year, opened Saturday at the David Winton Bell Gallery in List Art Building, featuring works from 44 Brown students, both VISA and non-VISA concentrators.
The juried exhibition, organized by Zachary Korol-Gold ’15 and Andrew Alexander ’15, held an open call for submissions earlier this month for student creative work in any medium. The 2015 exhibit was juried by Judith Tolnick Champa, an independent curator and critic, and Jerry Mischak, a senior painting critic at RISD. Pieces selected for the exhibit present the range of media and subject matter Brown students are exploring within the realm of the creative arts, including painting, drawing, book arts, sculpture, video, web, and performance.
Rory Macfarlane’s Cumulus welcomes visitors into the gallery. Inflated translucent trash bags form a looming, yet graceful cloud-like spheroid in the front corner of the exhibit. The piece is easily displaced by the movement of people through the gallery, gently rotating as one walks by it.
