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

Guest speaker, Justin Brown, will be hosting a workshop on Creating Inclusive Spaces for IUP faculty and programming staff from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Friday, October 23, 2020. As an IUP alum and a current PASSHE employee, Justin has a unique perspective on what life as an IUP student is like and he is well-versed in virtual DEI trainings – which works perfectly for times of social distancing. Justin has done some great trainings for our students, but we wanted to make sure that faculty and programming staff also had opportunities to engage in conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the classroom and at campus events. This will include classroom dynamics, course/event content, and curriculum. Justin is a dynamic presenter and while this session may seem like a long time to carve out of your schedule, it will be worth it! As Justin likes to say, "We can no longer be the change we want to see, we have to teach the change we want to see." The Zoom link and log-in details will be sent the day before the training. Please RSVP for the training.  Sponsored by the President's Commission on Diversity and Inclusion.  Further information:  mduncan@iup.edu
