Artist Reception with Raquel Rabinovich

When: Thursday, November 1, 2018, 5:30–7:30pm

Where: Thompson Memorial Library

In collaboration with the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center and to complement the concurrent exhibition Past Time: Geology in European and American Art, the Thompson Memorial Library presents a solo exhibition of the artist Raquel Rabinovich, who throughout her career has investigated how to make the invisible visible. The Reading Room features works on paper spanning from 1978 to 2017 including several works from Rabinovich’s ongoing series River Library, in which the artist uses the mud from rivers around the world as a drawing medium. The layers of mud function metaphorically as texts that carry latent histories of the rivers and the civilizations that have lived along their banks for millennia. The exhibition, which runs Oct. 25–Dec. 20, is funded by the Virginia Herrick Deknatel Fund. A Q & A with the artist will take place at 6:00pm during the Nov. 1 reception.
