Past Exhibition

Decolonizing the Exhibition: Contemporary Inuit Prints and Drawings from the Edward J. Guarino Collection

When: December 4, 2013 - February 2, 2014

About the Show

Over the past six years, the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center has been enhanced with a rich collection of Indigenous works donated by collector Edward J. Guarino. With his vast knowledge of the works and close relationships with the artists, Mr. Guarino has brought his expertise to Vassar and significantly contributed to the growth of its Native American Studies program. From this relationship, Assistant Professor of English and Native American Studies Molly McGlennen has developed a course that explores alternative approaches to the study and presentation of Indigenous art by utilizing a set of important contemporary Inuit works from Mr. Guarino's collection. The course culminates in Decolonizing the Exhibition, a student-curated show of eight works on paper by major Inuit artists. On view in the Focus Gallery.
