Art Exhibition: Body Bound
March 21 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Art History graduate student Rachel Allison’s thesis exhibition opens February 23rd from 5-7pm with curator remarks at 5:30pm and runs through April 1, 2023. The Emile H. Mathis Art Gallery is located in Mitchell Hall, is free, and is open Mondays through Thursdays from 10 am to 4 pm.
Body Bound traces the historically grounded and long-standing tradition of using bodily material as the basis for bookmaking. This practice has not subsided entirely in its traditional form but has also branched off and informed contemporary book-making practices. Contemporary books, specifically artist books, are a part of a longer history of using and presenting bodies with books. This exhibition includes historical books and contemporary artist books from the UWM special collections as well as the John Michael Kohler Art Foundation.
