What: Art in Libraries Exhibition, Displaced: The Semiotics of Identity
When: April 21 through May 22, 2016
Where: Wilson Library,
Hours: The exhibit is open during business hours at Wilson Library

Displaced: The Semiotics of Identity is an on-site installation and digital exhibition that invites contemplation on issues of displacement, survival, and identity. Displacement is a deeply personal experience and yet implicitly collective.

The curators are students from the semester-long Department of Art workshop Be the Curator: Curatorial Theory and Practice. Local art educators, curators, and artists helped guide the process of making a relevant and meaningful exhibition, which involved intensive group exploration of the value of artistic expression, how to establish a scope of artworks and objects that is inclusive and exclusive, and design an exhibition that is educational and engaging.

Co-sponsored by the University Libraries, the Center for Holocaust And Genocide Studies, and the Department of Art.
