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

Justin Brown, an IUP alumnus, will host “Ugh!?! Not Another Diversity Presentation” via Zoom for undergraduate and graduate student leaders. As an IUP alumnus, Justin has a unique perspective on what life as an IUP student is like, what has changed since he has been on campus, and the work we still have left to do.

Justin has over 10 years of experience leading diversity trainings and is well-versed in virtual trainings—which works perfectly for times of social distancing. According to Justin, this training will shift your paradigms regarding racism, prejudices, stereotypes, women’s issues, differences in gender, inequity, intersectionality, and media. This fully engaging and interactive session is facilitated using games, activities, role-plays, and social experiments that will help challenge and develop the participant’s mind and soul. Nothing is taboo. It pulls no punches and puts anything and everything on the table. Finally, this session will address anyone who desires to experience life through the eyes of others.

The Zoom link and login details will be sent out to participants the week of the training. Fill out the RSVP form to register for the event.

These trainings are sponsored by the President's Commission on Inclusion and Diversity.
