The Dartmouth Studio Art Department, the Hood Museum of Art, and the Hopkins Center for the Arts are pleased to present the second installment of the Dartmouth Alumni in the Arts Biennial Exhibition, which will be on view from January 10th through April 30th, 2015. Co-curated by Studio Art alumni Brice Brown ‘95 and Enrico Riley ‘95, this exhibition brings together an exciting and diverse range of works by 13 Dartmouth graduates: Mark Brosseau ‘98, Frank Chang ‘01, Carrie Fucile ‘99, Laura Grey ‘02, Anna Schuleit Haber MALS ‘05, Gisela Insuaste ‘97, Matthew Jones ‘02, Anna Linzee MacDonald ‘02, Karyn Olivier ‘89, Torin Porter ‘93, Catherine Ross ‘94, Kirsten Stromberg ‘94 and Anna Tsouhlarakis ‘99. Installed in the Nearburg Gallery and Arts Forum in the Black Family Visual Arts Center as well as the Top of the Hop, the works on view showcase the exceptional talents of Dartmouth alumni who have been working professionally in the art world since graduation. The exhibition includes works of art in a wide variety of media, including painting, photography, sculpture, video, book arts, drawing, new media and sound works. There are also three public performances scheduled throughout the course of the exhibition: for the opening reception on January 10th Gisela Insuaste will perform an interactive, process-based live installation; in March, Torin Porter will transform parts of the campus grounds in secretive and unexpected ways; and in April Anna Schuleit Haber will project live, large-scale digital drawings onto the side of a building. Specific dates and locations of the Porter and Schuleit Haber performances will be announced separately once confirmed. “This exhibition speaks to the ongoing commitment of the Studio Art Department to nurture and facilitate the development of Dartmouth students interested in the Arts,” said Brown and Riley. “Bringing together these 13 accomplished alumni gives us a chance to both celebrate the achievements of Dartmouth’s highly active creative community while also showing current Studio Art undergraduates the real possibility of choosing to be a professional artist. ”
