CCAD artists have work in a group exhibition, I Forget to Forget, at the the Ohio State University's Urban Arts Space, June 15–July 20.
Assistant professor and Fine Arts alumna Danielle Julian Norton (CCAD 1999) curated the exhibition that shows her work alongside seven other artists. CCAD-affiliated artists include assistant professor Shannon Benine, adjunct faculty and Fine Arts alumna Mariana Smith (CCAD 2002), professor and Fine Arts alumnus Tim Rietenbach (CCAD 1977), and adjunct faculty Melissa Vogley Woods.
The exhibition challenges the role artists play in historically characterizing events and questioning how we learn about our histories and personally and culturally develop meaning. Inspired by the practices and processes that confront them, these eight artists reinterpret, analyze, reassemble, and re-stage histories within a wide range of mediums and geographies.
