Carl Ostendarp: Book

Wednesday, April 6, 2016 at 5:00pm

Sibley Hall, Room 115, W. Sibley
942 University Ave, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

Join us for a Chats in the Stacks book talk with Carl Ostendarp, associate professor and director of graduate studies in the Department of Art.

Ostendarp’s installations employ wall sized murals of continuously painted two-tone drip shapes as a backdrop for museum and gallery collections of paintings, prints and sculptures which are intended to re-contextualize the exhibition space and to lead the viewer to a more impactful experience of art.

In Book (Snoeck, July 6, 2015), Ostendarp re-creates the continuous-drip motif using the pages of the book as gallery walls, inviting viewers to project their own imagery while merging some of the visual foundations of Modernism; Pop, Color Field and Minimalism into his simple biomorphic forms.

Refreshments served and books available for purchase.

This event is hosted by the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning, and the Fine Arts Library.
