The Aesthetics of Learning Exhibition

What does learning look like? What does learning sound like? How are aesthetics a conduit for rethinking the ways in which knowledge and power are formed?

"The Aesthetics of Learning" exhibition asks how learning may become an emancipatory and democratic event. If the university is a pedagogic institution that builds and shapes our understanding of the world, then perhaps the university art gallery is a forum for evaluating this function.

This exhibition brings together works from the Baruch College Collection that target the infrastructure of knowledge itself. Each from a different decade and by artists who have taught, these artworks examine the creation of institutional frameworks through three distinct approaches: listening, looking, and communicating. A performance by Joseph Beuys and Henning Christiansen, four photographs by Catherine Wagner, and seven etchings by Juan Downey—do-it-yourself instructions—require action and suggest the possibility of alternate, unrestricted solutions.

"The Aesthetics of Learning" is a free exhibition that will be on view from January 17 — March 1, 2019.
Mondays through Fridays 11 am to 6 pm.
Thursdays 11 am to 7 pm.
Please join us for the opening reception on Wednesday, January 16, 2019, 5 to 7 pm.

Pen + Brush

Furies, Fairies, Visionaries features works by thirty artists utilizing the visual languages of both fantasy and abstraction to claim and create space. Addressing gender, age, and sexuality; the evolution of urban and natural environments; the impact of technology, and more, these artists articulate profound, incisive, perspectives on current issues and conditions. Inspired by personal experiences, popular culture, concerns about climate change and socio-political inequities, as well as by formal and philosophical explorations of the nature of space and perception, these works demonstrate the vital need for women’s visions and voices to be seen and heard.

Whether navigating interior, imaginative realms or exterior, physical reality, women artists are taking and making more space in the struggle to create a more inclusive, equitable world. As heirs to the work of the Second Wave Women’s movement that transformed art and society in the 1970s, these 21st- century feminists illuminate how the personal and the public, the narrative and the abstract, are indeed political, today perhaps more than ever.
