Impermanent Topography:  2017 Department of Art Faculty + Staff Exhibition

Curated by: Michelle Lanteri, Interim Gallery Director

January 17-February 9, 2017

University Art Gallery

Featuring works by eleven NMSU Department of Art faculty and staff members, Impermanent Topography addresses the social, political, geographical, and cultural landscapes that comprise our ever-shifting understandings of contemporary life. This exhibition grapples with the unwieldy intersections of memory, selfhood, and information through human inscriptions of identity in paint, metal, clay, digital media, and experimental sculpture. A diverse selection of media and style give form to the inquiries put forth by the Impermanent Topography artists.

Artists:  Julia Barello, Tauna Cole-Dorn, Craig Cully, Jessika Edgar, Motoko Furuhashi, Richard Hesketh, Wes Kline, Adam Labe, Bree Lamb, Jacob Muñoz, Rachel Stevens
