Reader’s Art: Control/Alt/Shift
Curated by Susan Hensel and Jeff Rathermel
June 9, 2017 – August 13, 2017
Cowles Literary Commons
Presented in coordination with Book Art Biennial 2017
Reception: Friday, July 21; 6-9pm
This international juried exhibition explores one or more of three related themes: the politics of control; alternative methods of public discourse; and the ever-shifting nature of social norms and values. This exhibition continues the tradition of the Reader’s Art exhibitions organized for many years by the Susan Hensel Gallery in Minneapolis, MN. At the Susan Hensel Gallery, Reader’s Art explored the broad theme of narrative in the arts. As the new home of these popular shows, MCBA is dedicated to continuing Hensel’s tradition of supporting new voices, emerging artists and students.
