Art Installation Series: Branding the AfroFuture: Stacey Robinson

Stacey Robinson is the fifth featured artist in the Art Installation Series, an effort by the Mandeville Gallery and the Schaffer Library to shift the visual arts from a gallery setting into a public space. His work discusses ideas of “Black Utopias” as spaces of peace away from colonial influence by considering Black protest movements and the art movements that document(ed) them.

Art Installation Series: By the Patterns by Kira Nam Greene

My art installation, By the Patterns, involves wallpapers, stencils and wall painting of complex patterns, icons and design motifs. The patterns in these motifs are representations of cultures and political realities. Wallpapers are digitally designed, incorporating abstract geometrical elements and decorative motifs from Western and Eastern cultures. The combination of different wall-decorating techniques echoes the similar strategies employed in my paintings, but on a much larger scale.

Aliene de Souza Howell is the first artist to partake in the Art Installation Series in the Schaffer Library Learning Commons, an effort to shift the visual arts from a gallery setting and into a public space. Once a year, a contemporary artist will be invited to create an art installation piece for the Schaffer Library Learning Commons. Students, staff, faculty and the public will be able to view the artist at work, observe the creative process in real time, and informally interact with the artist as s/he creates.
