On View: February 1 – April 29, 2011
Opening Reception: Friday, February 18, 2011, 2-5pm in the Institute for Humanities Research, Social Sciences Building, Room 109
Description: The Humanities ask, what does the concept of “origins” teach us about being human? This exhibition brings together recent artwork by twelve artists that expand the interpretive boundaries of human origins, literally and figuratively, as a means of understanding ourselves and our place in the world around us. Through their work, these artists explore who we think we are, where we have come from, and what makes us human.
Featured Artists: Ron Broglio, Chris Hables Gray, Nicole Herden, Dodd Holsapple, Mary Hood, Angela Cazel Jahn, Mary Lyverse, Stephen Marc, Laurie Papa Minnick, Benjamin Phillips, Gwyneth Scally, and Kelsey Vance. Curated by Jacqueline Chao.
Artist Angela Cazel Jahn’s piece, “Our Little House of Once Was Knowledge” is featured in the lobby of Hayden Library.
This exhibition is sponsored by the Institute for Humanities Research, with special thanks to the Global Institute of Sustainability and the ASU Libraries. For more information, please visit http://ihr.asu.edu/origins
