Trace Elements: New Work at Oberlin

Stern and Ellen Johnson Galleries
October 18, 2005 — January 15, 2006

Trace Elements is the first exhibition devoted exclusively to the work of Oberlin's Studio Art faculty to be held at the AMAM in more than thirty years. Featured are new works by artists Rian Brown, Johnny Coleman, Pipo Nguyen-duy, John Pearson, Sarah Schuster, and Nanette Yannuzzi-Macias. Diverging in aesthetic and medium, these paintings, prints, drawings, and photographs, as well as sculpture, film, video and installations, connect with facets of the physical and intellectual landscape that surrounds us. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue that provides a closer look at each artist and their work.

This exhibition and catalogue have been organized by Stephen D. Borys, with the assistance of Jennie Hirsh (former Visiting Assistant Professor in the Art Department at Oberlin and currently a post-doctoral fellow at Princeton University) and curatorial interns Susanna Newbury (OC'05) and Alexander Grogan (OC'O5). Support has been generously provided by the Dean's Office, College of Arts and Sciences; the Office of Sponsored Programs (Research and Development Grant), Oberlin College; and the Friends of the Museum.
