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.

    Making art is a dynamic process of experimentation and change. Artists and designers test their ideas before setting out to make the finished product. Preparatory works, known as “studies,” are exciting to look at because they reveal the active mind of the artist engaged in creative discovery. A flurry of marks on a sheet of sketchbook paper conveys how quickly the brain and hand can move together.

    Although this exhibition focuses on drawings, every artistic medium has its own version of the unfinished study. Architects make blueprints, ceramists do multiple firings, printers and photographers use proofs, industrial designers fabricate prototypes, and on and on.

    Every fall semester at Lake Forest College, the senior art majors enroll in a seminar designed to help the students transition from undergraduates to working artists. The students visited artist residencies, galleries, and studios in Chicago and were challenged to create three projects that reflected who they were as artists. The resulting senior show is a culmination of the work they have created throughout their college career showcasing how they view the world around them with their respective aesthetic and media. The art majors of the graduating class of 2017 would like to thank the Lake Forest Art Department for aiding in the growth of their creativity and the guidance in making them the artists they are today. They would especially like to thank Professor Karen Lebergott for giving them the confidence and mentorship to leave Lake Forest with the confidence to change the world through the power of art.
