At Rutgers University–in Camden, NJ–a team of art scholars and professors have created a multimedia exhibition featuring the diverse, interdisciplinary works of a painter, a soprano, a graphic designers and an art historian.
from here to there: parallel trajectories features pieces that challenge viewers to create links between diverse works of art–ranging from paintings, to performances to iPads–that explore the idea of a work in progress.
The Rutgers-Camden professors co-curated this exhibit by selecting existing artwork or creating entirely new works themselves.
Painter Margery Amdur, an associate professor of art at Rutgers-Camden, selected works by Janet Biggs, Elizabeth Mackie, David Page, and Jonathan VanDyke that evoke significant change.
Internationally recognized soprano and recording artist Julianne Baird, a distinguished professor of music at Rutgers-Camden, will perform compositions by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. A schedule of public performances accompanies the exhibition, which is free of charge and open to the public.
The exhibition also includes such works as Janet Biggs's 2009 video Vanishing Point, with a soundtrack by Harlem's Addicts Rehabilitation Center Gospel Choir.
Using iPads as receivers and transmitters of regularly changing uploads, designers from around the world will provide a steady stream of new images over the course of the exhibition thanks to a display by Allan Espiritu, an associate professor of art at Rutgers-Camden
Martin Rosenberg, an art historian at Rutgers-Camden, has drawn on a long relationship with artists from around the country to present work that encapsulates each of the artist's development.
