The Denison Museum is hosting a talk by curator Niels Van Tomme, director of arts and media at Provisions Library, at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 4, 2010. This event will be held at the Denison Museum (240 West Broadway) and is free and open to the public.
Van Tomme is co-curator of the current Denison Museum exhibition “Close Encounters 2: Acts of Social Imagination” on view through March 22. He will discuss the range of social, political, and economic concerns addressed by the 12 artists and artist collectives represented in the exhibition. Van Tomme also will reflect on the use of an ever-expanding repertoire of media and methods employed by artists today. The exhibition represents a wide array of contemporary artists, including world-renowned artists Jenny Holzer and Adrian Piper, as well as Turner Prize-winner Jeremy Deller. Younger artists, such as Cory Archangel and Annabel Daou, bring dramatically divergent ways in which artists choose to engage their audience and see the world around them.
