"I Just Want to Know You" curated by Grace Morris 

 

Student Curator Grace Morris has titled her exhibition:

I JUST WANT TO KNOW YOU 

She states: “It will evoke a realization that each random passerby is living a life as complex and vivid as one's own. Each individual has dreams, friends, goals, heartbreak, worries, fears, routines, and stories that happen invisibly around us. We are all connected.” 

Morris continues: “This realization inspired Sarah Johnson, a senior Motion Design student, to create several short videos featuring friends, acquaintances, and strangers speeding at 10 second intervals in sync with interviews of each person. As the observer walks into the Willis Smith Galleries, there will be an overwhelming presence, flashing images, and personal stories that fill the room. The show imitates the experience of being in a crowded subway, picking up on bits and pieces of conversations happening all around.”

This exhibition was proposed by Grace Morris for the class BU 455 – The Role of the Curator in Contemporary Art taught by Mark Ormond for the Business of Art & Design Major as an elective class.

The exhibition will be on display from Wednesday, November 12 to Tuesday, November 25, beginning with an Opening Reception on Wednesday, November 12 from 4:00 to 6:00pm. A gallery talk will be held in the Willis Smith Galleries at 5:00pm on Wednesday, November 19th.

 

The Willis A. Smith Construction, Inc. Galleries located on the first floor of the Academic Center hosts a varied exhibition program of work by students, faculty, alumni and other contemporary artists.

Gallery Hours: Monday thru Saturday, 10:00am to 4:00pm. Closed on national holidays.
