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.

Through 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.

Exhibit Dates: September 15th-October 31st

IUP Homecoming is going virtual!

Homecoming is for all members of the IUP community and we need you to make it a memorable experience. While we will miss seeing everyone in person, we are excited that alumni, students, and friends from both near and far will be able to participate in our virtual Homecoming festivities from the comfort of their living rooms around the globe!  

Homecoming activities (for both students and alumni) will be hosted the week of October 4 through October 10, with a variety of virtual experiences both live and previously taped, including a few nostalgic videos!
