Fine Arts Gallery Acquisition Fund
(October 4 – December 7, 2007)
The Fine Arts Gallery has been building a collection of contemporary prints and multiples in recent years. Presented as a collaboration with the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities 2006-2007 Fellows and their two-day symposium Between Word and Image (October 25-26, 2007), More Than One: New Contemporary Prints and Multiples from the Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Collection (October 4-December 7, 2007) will be the first opportunity to view many of these works since the gallery acquired them. The exhibition will also incorporate a selection of historical prints from the collection, with commentaries written by the participating Fellows, in order to further explore the relationship between language and visual artifacts.
Artists to be featured include Ron Adams (U.S.), Christiane Baumgartner (Germany), Harmen Brethouwer (The Netherlands), Enrique Chagoya (U.S.), Michael Craig-Martin (England), Ian Hamilton Finlay (Scotland), Hamish Fulton (England), Fransje Killaars (The Netherlands), Michael Mazur (U.S.), Deborah Muirhead (U.S.), Martin Puryear (U.S.), Alexis Rockman (U.S.), Sigmar Polke (Germany), Kiki Smith (U.S.), Wouter van Riesen (The Netherlands), Kara Walker (U.S.), Carrie Mae Weems (U.S.), and Terry Winters (U.S.).
Also featured in this exhibition will be a site-specific installation by Erika Johnson. This work was commissioned by the Warren Center Fellows.
