Please join us on Thursday, February 5, 4:00-5:00, for a reception opening student-curated exhibitions at the Binghamton University Art Museum!

A World of Goods: Global Commodities in the East and West was curated by students enrolled in Art in the Age of Discoveries, 1500-1800, taught by Professor Nancy Um. This exhibition highlights the new products that appeared on the global scene in the early modern period at a time of increasing international exchange between Europe, Asia, and the Americas. These goods inspired innovative artistic responses and new social habits, such as smoking and tea drinking, that defined an increasingly interconnected world.

Two mini-exhibitions focus on the work of a single artist. Lovis Corinth: Provocative Prints was curated by Molly Stahl ’15 and focuses on the artist’s unconventional treatment of the female nude in the early 20th century and Coney Island: Familiar Faces in a Public Space, curated by Zsuzsanna Orban ’15, selects photographs from the portfolio by Brooklyn native Steve Salmieri and his study over several years of the place and the people at Coney Island.

The continuing exhibition of African sculpture and masks Living Objects: Makers, Markets, Museum features objects from the collection of Michael and Sylvia Horowitz. This exhibition was curated by students enrolled in Museums and the Art of Exhibitions, taught by Professor Pamela Smart.

All exhibitions are in the Nancy J. Powell Lower Galleries (FA-179) and will be on view Thursday, February 5—Saturday, March 14, 2015. Admission to the museum is free. For directions and museum hours visit artmuseum.binghamton.edu.
