Exhibition: Displacements

Displacements, an exhibition of work by faculty from the Stamps School of Art & Design curated by Gunalan Nadarajan, opens Oct. 15 at the School of Arts, Renmin University of China.

The notion of displacement is fundamental to any and all exhibitions insofar as an object that is displayed in a space other than where it was produced has essentially been displaced. The history of exhibition is in many ways thus a history of displacements ­— of site, space, context and therefore ultimately, meaning. What does displacement do to these works? Does the work mean and operate differently in different contexts or are some works essentially the same wherever they are shown? Members of the faculty from the Stamps School of Art & Design participating in this exhibition offer provocative responses to these complex questions of culture, context and meaning.
