First Encounters

November 30, 2012

Exhibition Dates:  November 30 - December 21st
Reception: Friday, November 30, 6 - 9 pm
Work•Ann Arbor

Curated by Guna Nadarajan, this exhibition features a selection of objects from the workspaces of faculty members of the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design. Understanding that the artist/designer workspace is often a primary locus of creative work and its related processes, Dean Nadarajan invited each faculty member to submit “an object or thing from your studio or workspace that would constitute an essential part of any meaningful introduction to your work.”  Through this invitation, this exhibition hopes to highlight the conceptual, historical, technical, spatial, personal and sometimes even incidental contexts and processes of creative work.
