Carry On: the Art + Architecture Faculty Triennial
March 6 – April 13, 2017
Carry On is a showcase of new work by 20 USF faculty members in the Department of Art + Architecture. Representing architecture, design, and fine arts, the works on view range from formal studies to commentaries on our times, from conceptual art to community projects.
Recognizing that the artists in Carry On are educators and practitioners, we invited them to reflect on the teachers, mentors, and influential artists whose words and ideas helped to inform their art practices and teaching. Museum Studies graduate students interviewed each of the exhibiting artists and then researched their mentors to create a “family tree” of two or three generations. In the process, they uncovered legacies in abstract expressionism, pattern language, Nadart, and the Beat movement. At the end of each interview, the artists in Carry On offered up their own advice to students. To hear these words of wisdom, click on the artist’s name below.
