Diversity Events

Tuesday, September 15, 2020

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

Panel Discussion: “Is Race Real?”

Elkin Hall and on Zoom

Anthropology Department

Three members of Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s Department of Anthropology will address the definition of race with a panel presentation and discussion.

The panelists will include Abigail Adams, a medical anthropologist; Ben Ford, an archaeologist; and Andrea Palmiotto, a forensic anthropologist. The panelists will be live in Elkin Hall with limited seating for students and a Zoom link for additional attendees.

“In this panel discussion, we will attempt to briefly disentangle the role of race in our physical and cultural lives and then lead a discussion with the audience,” Ford said. “Anthropology studies the whole human, physical and cultural, present and past, and provides a unique way to consider if race is real.

“Race is such a difficult concept that even its reality is debated,” Ford said. “While scientists have shown that race is not detectable in our genes, race is very much present in the daily lives of millions of Americans. The culturally engrained practices of our society can result in health outcomes that make race not only culturally real, but physically real as well.”

Elise Glenn, IUP’s Chief Diversity and Inclusion officer, Title IX coordinator, and director of the Office of Social Equity/Title IX, will introduce the event. “This event is part of our ongoing work to continue this important discussion, and to put words into action,” she said.

Limited seating is available in Elkin Hall. To attend online, register for the Zoom session.
