Blank Slate: Student collaborative installation
Students from the class, Art History 320: Modern Art and Architecture, at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology will create an installation in the Apex Gallery. The entire gallery will be transformed into an environment based upon ideas that they have developed. The exhibition will be a product of this process, with students creating the exhibition from initial concept to the final product.
Since each group will develop their own focus, an overall theme for the installation has yet to be determined. Students will allow the outcome to develop through the process of refining, trial and error, change, innovation, and consensus. The collaborative process is expected to transform their ideas in unforeseen ways from the initial concept to the final product as they solve creative problems.
Some of the possibilities will be elements of light, projected images, found object sculptures, paintings, and visitor participation. The exhibition is still in it’s gestation stage and will be an exciting process that is sure to transform as it develops.
Blank Slate: Student collaborative installation will be in exhibition in the Apex Gallery from March 31 – April 28, 2000. An opening reception will be held April 7, from 4: 00 – 6: 00 pm. Please note the gallery will be closed from March 25th to the 30th for the installation of Blank Slate.
The Apex Gallery is located in the Classroom Building on the campus of the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology. Gallery hours are: Monday – Friday, noon till 5: 00 pm; Saturday, 10: 00 am till 5: 00 pm; and Sunday, noon till 4: 00 pm. For further information contact Deborah Mitchell, Director, at 605.394.1254.
