January 7, 2014
The work of five artists from the faculty of the University of Michigan Stamps School of Art & Design - Janie Paul, Robert Platt, Endi Poskovic, Nancy Thayer and Russell Thayer - will be exhibited in Terra Nullius: Land That Belongs to No One, an exhibition at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center from January 10 through February 28, 2014.
Curated by Nancy Thayer, the exhibition will express the importance, impact, spiritual implications and significance of land as it touches and permeates the human experience. The work is not site specific, but refers to individual permeations. The artists have included universal features of earthly forms that correspond to niches of our internal worlds. Rather than being ‘about nature’ the work can be characterized as being focused on ideas about nature. The works in the exhibition will include elements of painting, drawing, lithographic prints, film, sculpture and installation. A public reception will be held on Friday, January 10, 2013 from 6:00 — 8:00 p.m.
The exhibition was reviewed on January 20 in the Oakland Press: U-M group exhibit in Birmingham features multimedia views of land, nature.
