To Have and To Hold

Fri, May 10, 2024 - Fri, June 7, 2024 • Perlman Teaching Museum

To Have and To Hold is an exhibition of artworks from the Carleton Art Collection, curated by museum student workers Brett Olson ’24 and Alex Tananbaum ’25.

Their display includes three recent acquisitions to the collection: twelve woodblock prints from the early 20th-century Shin-Hanga movement in Japan, a stonecut and stencil print by Canadian Inuit artist Pudlo Pudlat (1916–1992), and four prints by American artist and original member of the Chicago Imagist group, Barbara Rossi (1940–2023).

Additionally, both student curators made personal selections from the Carleton Art Collection, starting with the prompt: “If you could choose just one artwork from the over 5,000 artworks in our permanent collection, what would it be?” Their final display has an emphasis on gender, personal identity, and the interplay between image and text. Many of the artist’s books included are on loan from Gould Library Special Collections, creating a conversation between two campus art archives.

Learn more about the Carleton Art Collection and join student curators Brett and Alex for a guided walkthrough of their exhibition on Thursday, May 23, 4:30–5:00 p.m.

This exhibition is located in the Perlman Teaching Museum’s Kaemmer Family Gallery. For information on exhibition and event accessibility, please contact Farrah Pribyl at or (507) 222-5567.
