Exhibition Open From: 11/19/2021 - 12/5/2021
Change is inevitable. It simultaneously prompts every new beginning even when we don’t feel ready for one. FLUX is an exhibition organized by Curatorial Studio that explores life, death, and the cyclical nature of change in society. The exhibition includes pieces ranging from micro-level examinations of the relationship between nature, vitality, and science; to pieces commenting on gender-roles, traditionalism, and environmentalism. The interconnectedness of these topics are unveiled throughout the artposts, each addressing a different aspect of societal change. Our daily life is an ever-evolving collection of changes, some of which go unnoticed, and FLUX attempts to give focus to these mundane factors that are often overlooked. We witness the unmasking of changes happening internally, locally, and globally at a rapid pace.
Curatorial Studio is an undergraduate Visual Studies course offered at Grand Valley State University within the Visual and Media Arts Department. Curatorial Studio explores the presentational, the critical practice and the theoretical discourse specific to curating art exhibitions from within a studio context. This involves the actual curation of exhibitions, projects and programming including Flux.
