This retrospective exhibition chronicles the career of Robert Indiana from 1934 to 2017 and showcases many iconic images, including “EAT,” “LOVE,” and “HOPE.”  Two of his latest masterpieces, “Like a Rolling Stone,” a series featuring 1960s pop-culture figure Bob Dylan and others, and “THE ALPHABET,” the definitive work labeling him as the world’s premiere word artist will be featured in this collection of 55 pieces, some of which have never been shown. These works showcase Indiana’s unique method of working with the same image on paper, canvas, print, and in three-dimensions.

About Prints: The Legacy of Stanley William Hayter

January 11, 2018

Stanley William Hayter (1901-1988), a preeminent, influential printmaker, and founder of Atelier 17, was a strong advocate for experimentation and development of new printing techniques as a tool for artistic ideas. Hayter’s personal checklist of distinctive prints and their importance to the understanding of the graphic arts in the 20th century are featured in this exhibition of 58 works. Included are etchings, lithographs and other printmaking techniques by Picasso, Marc Chagall, and Henry Moore, along with other significant visionaries and technical innovators such as Andre Masson, Max Ernst, Joan Miro, Karl Schrag, and Mauricio Lasansky. This exhibition is generously supported by the Helena Foundation. Organized by the Syracuse University Art Galleries.

Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science

Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science

October 26, 2017

This collaborative project by a scientist and an artist from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine asks the viewer to consider the aesthetics of human disease, a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion, or culture. More than sixty medical science professionals present photographs of visually stunning patterns of different diseases affecting various areas of the human anatomy in this exhibition. Captured with a variety of imaging technology that range from spectral karyotyping to scanning electron microscopy, we see beauty in the delicate lacework of fungal hyphae invading a blood vessel, the structure of the normal cerebellum, and the desperate drive of metastasizing cancer cells. Ultimately, this series of images will leave the viewer with an understanding and appreciation of visual beauty inherent within the field of modern medical science. This exhibition is a collaborative exhibition and book by Norman Barker & Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue.
