Coveting Nature explores the ways in which botanists and entomologists worked in tandem with artists and illustrators to record and disseminate knowledge in the early modern period (1500-1800).
The 2017 Annual Faculty exhibition will mark the 92nd year of the longstanding collaboration between the School of Art + Design and Krannert Art Museum to showcase current work by studio faculty teaching in the School of Art + Design.
This exhibition takes the centennial of the Russian Revolution as an occasion to think of revolution as a broad category. Early twentieth-century political organizers co-authored slogans as a brainstorming device for developing consciousness of their situation. Each piece has the potential to open conversation of what revolution means in our contemporary moment.
Drawing from both historical and contemporary periods, World on the Horizon will explore the Swahili coast, hinterland, and western Indian Ocean rim as worlds linked not only by centuries of trade, but also through the flow of aesthetic ideas and practices that have long traversed the region.
Conversation on "Religion in Europe -- 500 years since the protestant reformation" with multiple presenters.
Мы будем говорить только по-русски! Conversation in Russian, all levels welcome!
