Martin Art Gallery has temporarily closed.

Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our community, and so the Gallery will remain closed in accordance with the College, and will only resume programming when it is deemed safe to do so. 

Anthony Cervino: Hurry with the Furies
March 10 - April 11

Anthony Cervino's solo exhibition Hurry with the Furies will feature a suite of new works that use the visual and formal language of institutional critique to explore how we fethisize cultural objects. Cervino's recreated historical objects manipulate material conventions by resulting in humorous, and often transgressive meditations on his personal past.

Anthony Cervino has exhibited widely, and is a professor of art at Dickinson College, and 
Co-Director/Curator of Ejecta Projects in Carlisle, PA.
Artist Talk: March 17, 7pm in the Recital Hall
Public Reception: WEDNESDAY March 25, 5:30 – 7pm

The Autonomist Anomaly, Curated by Felice Moramarco

 Postponed until Spring 2021

In this premiere of a new exhibition guest curator Felice Moramarco takes a fresh look at the Autonomist Movement in Italy in the 1970's.  Rooted in archival materials, Moramarco implicitly draws connections to speech and action happening in public discourse today in response to political polarization rooted in economic inequality.  The exhibition Autonomist Anomaly aims to give an insight into the aesthetics, language, and political strategies that animated the movement Autonomia Operaia (Workers’ Autonomy), active in Italy from the 1974 until 1979. The radical ideas and imagery that this movement managed to create will be displayed through a series of videos, photographs, and archive material, arranged and exhibited according to specific themes. Paired with this exhibition is a talk and discussion with Silvia Federici, a co-founder of the International Feminist Collective, and an organizer with the Wages for housework campaign.

Opening Reception: March 25, 5:30 – 7pm
Walk-through discussion with the curator: March 25, 6pm
Companion talk: Silvia Federici: TUES. March. 31, 7pm in the Recital Hall
