Carl Ostendarp: Book
Join us for a Chats in the Stacks book talk with Carl Ostendarp, associate professor and director of graduate studies in the Department of Art.
Ostendarp's installations employ wall sized murals of continuously painted two-tone drip shapes as a backdrop for museum and gallery collections of paintings, prints, and sculptures which are intended to recontextualize the exhibition space and to lead the viewer to a more impactful experience of art.
In Book (Snoeck, 2015), Ostendarp recreates the continuous-drip motif using the pages of the book as gallery walls, inviting viewers to project their own imagery while merging some of the visual foundations of modernism, pop, color field, and minimalism into his simple biomorphic forms.
Refreshments will be served and books will be available for purchase. This book talk is hosted by AAP and the Fine Arts Library.
