The Grunwald Gallery is pleased to present this exhibit for the first time in the gallery’s history. This show will feature the work of nine alumni from the Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts who have graduated within the past 15 years. Each artist has been nominated by faculty in their area based on the quality of their work and their outstanding accomplishments after graduation. The alumni show presents a wonderful opportunity to incorporate the knowledge and experiences of former students into the ongoing conversation about art at IU. At the same time, the work of these highly regarded alumnae serves as a valuable model for our current students as they look to continue engaging the world through art post-graduation.

Art Exhibit ‘Naked Spaces: Architecture in Art from the Kinsey Institute Collection’

01:30 pm to 05:00 pm
Indiana University, Kinsey Institute, Morrison Hall 3rd Floor
http://www.kinseyinstitute.org

Drawing on the Kinsey Institute’s permanent collections, Naked Spaces investigates the ways artists manipulate architectural representation to communicate ideas about sex, gender, and the erotic. Architectural form is used by artists working around the globe—and across time—as an invitation to view, but also as a plea for privacy; architectural space is used a framing device as well as screen. The diversity of artworks included in the exhibition creates an opportunity for viewers to consider the role played by the built environment in the construction of their own private and public identities.

The exhibition will include works by Toby Kaufmann, Andrey Avinoff, Michael Fingesten, Herbert Ascherman, Suzuki Harunobu, Clarence John Laughlin, Tom Bianchi, Clifford Raven Ingram, Max Kislinger, Rita Koehler, Emilio Sanchez, Edie Fake, Lehnert & Landrock, Arthur Tress, Félicien Rops, D. Keith Furon, Anne Roecklein, Ronald Searle, and Spencer Tunick.

Guest curator: S. N. Johnson-Roehr, Rutgers University.

Visiting hours are Monday thru Friday, 1:30 to 5 pm. Tours are available for 6 or more people. Call (812) 855-7686 for more information. Guides are provided when one is available.

Due to adult content, visitors should be 18 years of age or older, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
