  • COMPOSITE brings together senior art majors

    27 May 2015

    Walk into the museum to enter a realm of varied artworks: painted plexiglas portraits hanging off the ceiling, an interactive sculptural piece with cut-out maps and viewers’ personal stories, woodblock printed books scattered across a table. Composite, an exhibition at the Braucher Gallery of the Perlman Teaching Museum, showcases recent work from this year’s 14 senior studio art majors. The show is scheduled at the end of the academic year and the end of these majors’ Carleton careers. However not all objects represent a “final year project” (or COMPS); some students choose to present more recent post-COMPS projects.

    All fourteen sets of work share a delicate and attentive sensibility towards personal, social, and conceptual issues. These young artists are interested in different topics, and every approach is engaging: Hannah Jones’s photography focuses on subjective and objective experiences through a sleep study; Seana Buzbee explores the paradoxical nature of time in oil paintings; Bob Otsuka presents a mixed media installation in the small top floor Weitz galleries that speaks to personal sentiments and nostalgia. Both a conclusion and a jump-off point for these undergraduate art majors, Composite is a refreshing account of how young artists engage the world through a language that is both intimate and broad, subjective yet universal.

  • Carltography: The Exhibition

    17 February 2015

    What began as a simple collaborative map-making project has grown into an impressive work of art, beautifully capturing the diverse experiences found in the common place that is Carleton College. Carltography was created by Carleton Students Peter Barron ’17, Vayu Maini Rekdal ’15, and Jackson Van Fleet ’15. Students, alumni, faculty, staff, and other members of the Northfield community have all contributed to Carltography by submitting hand-drawn maps of the campus and their own comments. While some people document the locations of their personal experiences on these maps, others have created entirely new, imaginative worlds on the campus maps. …
