N.J. -- Visitors are invited to reconnect - or connect for the first
time -- with contemporary art at The Gallery at Mercer County Community
College. In the second installation of artwork by 16 arists entitled
"Reconnect," the artists have re-hung the first exhibition
in order to create new formal and conceptual connections between
the works. Special programming for this second exhibition includes
a Gallery Talk on Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 11 a.m. and a concert by the
multi-instrumental improv duo, "Stop Correcting Me," featuring
Wilbo Wright and Erica Haltmeier, on Wednesday, Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m.
The exhibit and all events are free and open to the public and take
place at The Gallery on the second floor of the college's Communications
Building on the West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
The internationally and nationally known artists featured in both
shows include: Peter Arakawa, Rita Asch, Berendina Buist, Mark Cooley,
Anne Dixon, Yevgeniy Fiks, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Brian Goings, John
Goodyear, Susan Hockaday, Lucy Hodgson, Eve Ingalls, Margaret Kennard
Johnson, Caroline Lathan-Stiefel, Marsha Levin-Rojer, and Frank
Magalhaes. Among the works on display are sound installations, interactive
video stations, sculpture, photography, prints, and multi-media
sculptures, many installed with objects that inspired or directed
the development of the artwork.
According to MCCC Gallery Director Tricia Fagan, before hanging
the new show, the artists reviewed suggestions from visitors to
the first exhibit. Both shows have been curated by the eight-person
artist group, Movis, in collaboration with Fagan. Eight additional
artists working in contemporary media or themes, including MCCC
Professor of Visual Arts Yevgeniy Fiks, have also participated.
