The Marxhausen Gallery of Art opened a new exhibition called “Who Do You Say That I Am?” on Feb.10. The show used items created from their Permanent Collection and was put together to explore the different diversities of culture.
Senior Jordyne Vanselow, a Concordia art major, helped set up the show and put it together.
“We used similar prints from the permanent collection as well as finding photographs through public domain and pulling together animations that we created for the exhibition,” Vanselow said.
The reception for the gallery’s show was on Feb. 17 from 1-4 p.m. A panel talk consisting of Professor of Communication and Theater Bryan Moore, Assistant Professor of Biology Jennifer Freund, and Colombian contemporary artist Nancy Friedmann was held at 2 p.m. that same day. They were part of the team that put the gallery’s show together.
Sophomore Kassidy Grosserode, another Concordia art major, had a few things to say about the exhibition as well.
“I like the diversity of the show. It brings out the characteristics of things you may not normally expect,” Grosserode said.
The individuals that worked together to put up the show wanted to express an array of exhibits that explored many aspects of culture’s identity.
“It implements the diversity of race, religion, sexuality and age of humans to capture the variations between them,” Vanselow said.
The Marxhausen Gallery of Art will have the exhibition up until Mar. 29 for anyone that would like to see the show. The gallery will be closed Mar. 2-10 due to the spring recess.
