Martin Art Gallery has temporarily closed.
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.

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
