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

The IUP Career and Professional Development Center, in cooperation with TWC, offers internships in Washington, DC, a city unique in its status as our nation’s capital. As the epicenter of American government, Washington is a natural setting for political study. Beyond the political and government realm, however, Washington is also home to hundreds of major corporations, nonprofit organizations, advocacy groups, and agencies. Zoom link.

For more than 230 years, new generations have tested the framework of government outlined in the US Constitution. But this year’s events have presented constitutional challenges so great that some question whether the Constitution can continue to effectively serve the needs of our society. Come ask the authors of the 1787 Constitution what they think. What did they hope to accomplish with the Constitution? Do they think that it’s time to draft a new governing document? Why did they allow the Constitution to cast a blind eye toward racial inequality? To commemorate National Constitution Day, we’ll have four of the authors of the Constitution to discuss the work they did in writing the Constitution, and to talk to you directly.
