Anna Von Mertens
A Love Story Curated by Kirsten Swenson, Associate Professor of Art History
The exhibition will be open from Jan. 22 - Mar. 3, 2018. Von Mertens will present a lecture to the public on Wed. Jan. 31 at 3:30 p.m. A reception will follow afterwards from 5-6:30 p.m. in the University Gallery in Mahoney Hall.
A Love Story will present a new series of drawings based on emojis, the pictograms that enliven our smartphone communications. The exhibit will also include an installation of Von MertensÕs conceptual quilts featuring two large-scale bed-forms with fabric squares dyed to match colors that intersect with our daily routines in unique ways: hardware store paint chips, the results of interviewing friends about their least favorite color, or a daily record of the artist's morning pee.
