The 613 by ARCHIE RAND
11 September – 13 October 2018
Wampler Visiting Professor
Reception: 12 September 2018, 5-7p

Archie Rand assembles a momentous 613-panel installation, whose completion took over five years of studio work, to form his largest non-mural work ever. The 613, a serial painting inspired by the 613 Jewish commandments in the Hebrew Bible, come together to form a startling visual narrative, mysteriously addressing the deepest ritual systems of tradition. Rand’s historical and contemporary influences merge to inform an unanticipated relationship between inviolate scripture and illustration, pop, comic, graphic and filmic imageries.

Record Keepers
23 October – 01 December 2018
curated by Anna Hoberman & John Ros
Encore Exhibition
Opening Reception: 22 October 2018, 5-7p

Since the Renaissance, prints have enabled artists to disseminate their work and perspectives throughout the world. Unlike other types of non-digital art, a print can exist in multiple places at the same time. Editions have played — and continue to play — an important role in documenting and testifying to the existence of events throughout history. This documentary ability puts a print into the realm of an archive. Record Keepers is a group exhibition composed of “print” artists who strive to preserve both current and historical events through their editions.
