ub gallery vs events

The UB Art Galleries and the Department of Art are presenting an event on Sept 4 to welcome everyone back to UB this fall – we hope that all faculty and students will attend!

Two art openings and a DJ
Thursday, September 4 from 5 to 7pm
Center for the Arts

Exhibition 1:
UB Art Gallery
Lyle Ashton Harris
Blow Up

September 4 through October 18, 2008
This survey exhibition spans nearly twenty years of work, from the early, formal studio self-portraits for which Harris first gained acclaim to the large-scale constructions featured in the 2007 Venice Biennale. Harris approaches photography as social performance. He “blows up” preconceptions of portraiture, mass media imagery and street photography.

Exhibition 2:
The Visual Studies Gallery, B45
Incubation

Organized by UB’s Student Visual Art Organization featuring recent undergraduate work from every concentration and media in the Art program in the Department of Art.

Music: DJ Nico with Tone Doctor’s Mobile DJ Services
