The Complexity and Coherence of Gallatin Faculty Art

The first-ever Gallatin faculty art show is on through January 16—and, as befits the school’s approach to interdisciplinary, individualized study, it represents a wide range of media and diverse points of view.

Called “Complexity and Coherence,” the exhibition features painting, sculpture, architecture, and costume design by Gallatin’s Interdisciplinary Arts faculty, touching on a range of themes from the legacy of colonialism to public spectacle as a language of dissent.

“To look at the things as they are, to deny the permanence of one way of seeing or thinking, is the challenge the students confront in our classes on a weekly basis, and which, it would seem, unifies us in our creative labor,” writes curator Keith Miller in the show’s catalog. “Challenges to history sit beside affirmations of tradition, proposals for the future converse with rebuttals to current political and economic realities.”

For a respite from the winter weather, head to the Gallatin Galleries at 1 Washington Place to see these artworks in person. And for a sneak peek, check out the slideshow above.
