Lincoln, Neb. - "DRRRROP," an exhibition of exhibitions, will open Nov. 28 and run through Dec. 2 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Art and Art History's Eisentrager-Howard Gallery.
A reception will be held Friday, Dec. 2 from 5-8 p.m. in the Gallery. The reception is free and open to the public.
"DRRRROP" represents curatorial projects by seven emerging curators. The exhibitions include investigations into art as environmental regeneration, experiments with context and placement, an obsessive altar to creativity, a tape release of recordings partially erased by a meteorite/electromagnet, an installation of 1,800 photographs pulled from an online photo-sharing site, the reclamation of thrown-away art projects and a hands-on exhibition of local artists in a home-like space.
The exhibitions were curated by Abbey Arlt, Scott Cook, Bentley Easler, Blair Englund, Teal Gardner, Amanda Heskett and Bryan Klopping. The students are all enrolled in Assistant Professor of New Genres and Digital Art Jeff Thompson's Curatorial Practice as Art Practice class this semester.
The Eisentrager-Howard Gallery is located on the first floor of Richards Hall, which is located at Stadium Drive and T streets on the UNL city campus. Gallery hours for this exhibition will be Monday-Friday, noon to 4 p.m. The gallery is free and open to the public.
