"Utopia Lives: Symbolic Aboriginal Art from Australia"
Aboriginal art is based on important ancient stories (Jukurrpa) and symbols centered on ‘the Dreamtime’ – the period in which Indigenous people believe the world was created. These paintings are big and bold and represent stories that have been handed down through generations. David Glenn, a Ph.D. candidate in Public Health at UConn, shares some of the paintings that have captured both his eye and imagination.
Curator: Suzanne Zack
Out of the Frame: Alternative Arts of the 1980s
On the fringe of the American art world, writers, musicians and artists of the 1980s sought alternative spaces in which to conduct their art-making. Presented by Archives & Special Collections, the exhibit highlights works of the Dial-a-Poem movement and cyberpunk writers, memorabilia and recordings documenting punk rock music and offset printed artists’ books of the period.
Curators: Kristin Eshelman, Graham Stinnett, Melissa Watterworth-Batt
