Description
This exhibition pairs drawings selected from Victoria Wagner's First Year Drawing 1: Form and Gesture Fall 2016/Spring 2017 classes with a selection of archival photographs of Meyer Library from late 60s to early 70s, to see the Meyer Library through both contemporary and archival lenses. Wagner’s students were prompted to respond to questions of scale, perspective and proportion with tools, techniques and methods discussed and practiced throughout the semester. Using the Meyer Library as a template, each student-artist chose to explore the formal aspects of the project from unique vantage points to frame the Meyer Library’s dynamic architecture while simultaneously creating narratives that explore a sense of shifting time, history, legacy, intimacy and phenomenon of space.
