Out of Rubble (4/2 – 5/16)

OutOfRubble01The Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture presents the exhibition Out of Rubble, which reacts to the wake of war — its realities and its representations. The rubble that each war leaves behind shapes today and tomorrow — physically, psychologically and spiritually. Responding to a wide range of violent encounters taking place over four continents, Out of Rubble presents works by seventeen artists and architects from over ten countries who consider its causes and consequences, its finality and future, moving from decimation and disintegration to the possibilities of regeneration and recovery. Featured artists and architects include: Taysir Batniji, Lenka Clayton, Andrew Ellis Johnson, Susanne Slavick, Monica Haller, Sara Pellegrini and DAAR, Simon Norfolk, Jennifer Karady, Heide Fasnacht, Wafaa Bilal, Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz, Enrique Castrejon, Rocio Rodriguez, elin o’Hara slavick, Osman Khan, Hirokazu Fukawa, Jane Dixon and Samina Mansuri. The exhibition is curated by Susanne Slavick, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon University.

The exhibition’s opening reception will be held on Thursday, April 2, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.   The Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm and is located in the Fine Arts Building. Admission is free. For complete information, click here.
