September 15–October 31Virtual Artist Talk on Tuesday, September 15, 8:00 p.m., Kipp Gallery, First Floor of Sprowls Hall
The exhibition Brita d’Agostino: Reconstructing Desires focuses on
the act of cultural consumption by transforming print media targeted
towards women into dynamic and semi-abstract collages as installations.
Informed by historical art movements and contemporary practice, Brita
d’Agostino reimagines the visual language of glamour magazines into
hybridized collaged forms created both intentionally and intuitively.
This online exhibition is a virtual installation designed specifically
for the Kipp Gallery at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
her process, d’Agostino explores the visual design and patterns embedded
in a social system of images carefully constructed to elicit desire in
consumers. She is deconstructing and recombining surfaces, subverting
the original meaning of the images through her own aesthetic
investigations. Her playful synthesis of her source material into new
forms and presented in a different context offers a fresh perspective of
the content for the audience. The end result is a combination of shapes
and color that borders on abstraction, yet incorporates elements of
contemporary American consumer culture.
The artist talk will be held in the Oak Grove. Anyone interested in joining the Zoom virtual talk can email firstname.lastname@example.org for a link.
