ATLANTA¿ The Visual Arts Gallery at Emory University announces "Cross-Reference," an exhibition of faculty and selected alumni work, on view from Friday, January 31 ¿ Saturday April 5, 2013. Guest-curated by Rebecca Dimling Cochran, the exhibition highlights the contributions the Visual Arts Department has made across the Emory campus. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, January 30, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
Since 2006, the Visual Arts Gallery has organized over 35 exhibitions with related lectures and symposium that have resulted in creative collaborations with colleagues in various departments as well as opportunities for students to experience a visual interpretation of a range of subjects. ¿Cross-Reference¿ honors that past by including works that address subjects directly related to mathematics, history, literature, psychology, environmental studies, medicine and behavioral science among other subjects.
Rebecca Dimling Cochran is curator of the Wieland Collection and a freelance art critic. In 2012, she organized the symposium ¿OFF/Center: Art Writing from the Regions¿ in collaboration with the Emory Visual Arts Department and the International Association of Art Critics.
Hours for the Visual Arts Gallery are Monday ¿ Thursday 10-5 p.m., Saturday 12-4 p.m., and by appointment. Visit visualarts.emory.edu for details.
