Winona State University will host the art exhibition “How to Disappear” Sept. 15 to Oct. 3 in the Watkins and Weber galleries in Watkins Hall.
A curator’s talk with faculty host Roger Boulay is scheduled at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 24, in the Watkins gallery, and will be followed by a reception at 5 p.m.
“How to Disappear” investigates the connections between 10 artists that use erasure in their work, either literally or conceptually. Some of the artists use erasure to address notions of identity. Others use erasure to critique problematic cultural practices.
Participating artists are: Kathleen Hawkes (La Crosse, Wis.), Sharon Lee Hart (Boca Raton, Fla.), Tina Tahir (Chicago, Ill.) Hunter Lewis (Chicago, Ill.) Stephen Sewell (Brooklyn, N.Y.) Jason DeMarte (Anne Arbor, Mich.), Bree Lamb (Albuquerque, N.M.), George Richardson (Taos, N.M.), Nora Chase (Philadelphia, Pa.) and Dima Strakovsky (Lexington, Ky.)
The exhibit will include installation work, drawings, a video work, photography and mixed- media works.
