Art and Art History

Lapsus Undone

Lapsus Undone explores the perennial condition of transformation as reflected in our surroundings, our bodies, our histories and technologies. Curated by students in Professor Lia Alexopoulos’ Museum/Gallery Practicum course, this exhibit invites the visitor to reflect on circumstances that have shaped the present, put aside constructs of reality and leave behind the place left.

    Lorna Marsh is a figurative expressionist who blends symbolism, surrealism, and expressionism. She has evolved a unique mark making technique to create fresh images that illustrate the universal language of human beings. Marsh uses both her hands and no brushes; nothing lies between Marsh and her surface. The Pen & Ink series explores the isolation of social relationships. Ms. Marsh was born in Cape Town, South Africa and studied at the London Royal Academy of Art and at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

    Pieces in this exhibition were selected from the MacLean Collection of Asian Art, housed in a private museum in Mettawa, Illinois and were curated by the students in Art History 238: Curating an Art Collection during this past fall semester. The objects, all from China, include five different media: wood, bronze, stone, pottery, and plaster, and range from 3500 BCE to contemporary time.

    The conversations on stereotypes and representation, body image and the way women have been represented in art, emotion and the way the psychological is conveyed, and tradition and the transcendence of time, all have a universality to them. Not only can everyone contribute to these individual thematic issues, but they also strongly relate to each other. Through Multiple Voices, we opened conversation between the curators (the students in Rebecca Goldberg’s Art History 238: Curating an Art Collection), their chosen objects, and the viewers. We welcomed the viewer to connect with each object and contribute their own voice to the conversation.
