INTERSECTIONS

Nov. 4 - Dec. 2, 2006

INTERSECTIONS postcard

Opening Saturday, November 4th, the Creative Research Laboratory presents Intersections.

At what instant do we see an intersection between a mentor and their apprentice? This moment can appear as a single coordinate on the map of art making or as a major turning point in a body of work for either artist. Intersections focuses on the moment in time when the influence of the teacher can be glimpsed in the work of the student.

This junction appears in the work of two alumni from The Department and Art and Art History: Meggie Chou and Murray McMillan (with collaborative partner Megan McMillan), paired with their mentors, Bill Lundberg and Rebecka Sexton. Artist and art historians will merge, resulting in a brochure developed especially for this show, featuring writings by graduate students from the Department of Art History.

Click on the each name below to listen to the artists speak with Katja Rivera, a second year masters student in Art History at the University of Texas, and CRL Director Jade Walker about their work:
