The Department of Art and Art History hosts Renee Van der Stelt’s exhibition opening on Monday, Feb. 5. The artist will speak about her installation at a 5:30 p.m. reception in Gallery 406 at Arts West.
Van der Stelt’s graphite drawings and objects reveal a complex relationship to the rural landscape in the United States as it relates to control, trust and deeds. Legal instruments can be used in subtle ways to protect territories and perpetuate tight borders and ownership through culturally inherited forms of shame and fear. A deep interest in maps further informs these works.
The exhibition continues through March 9.
