Continuing Exhibitions

Through Feb. 17 - William Kentridge: Universal Archive and Journey to the Moon

The Trout Gallery, Weiss Center for the Arts
Gallery hours: Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

In Universal Archive, internationally acclaimed South African artist William Kentridge (b. 1955) revisits images that appear frequently in his work—coffee pots, typewriters, cats, trees—through a sequence of prints that progress gradually from identifiable forms to seemingly abstract marks. The images are printed on dictionary pages, which juxtapose creativity with authoritative text to examine the nature of rational thought and knowledge construction. This exhibition was organized by the Gund Gallery at Kenyon College and is made possible, in part, by contributions from Alva Greenberg, the Gund Gallery Board of Directors and the Ohio Arts Council. Complementing Universal Archive, Kentridge’s live-action/animated short film Journey to the Moon will be projected continuously in the gallery. William Kentridge’s films are provided courtesy of Marian Goodman Gallery, New York/London.

Through Feb. 3: Rachel Eng: Irreversible Results

The Trout Gallery, Weiss Center for the Arts
Gallery hours: Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

This exhibition investigates the phenomenal aspects of the natural world and also responds to our current climate situation. Using different materials—some with inherent meaning and others transformed—the pieces in this exhibition question our human curiosity, empathy and potential for change. Rachel Eng is Dickinson’s newly appointed assistant professor of ceramics.
