Carleton College’s Weitz Center for Creativity Celebrates the New Year with a Pair of Impressive Exhibits
Carleton College’s Weitz Center for Creativity is the setting for two new art exhibits opening in January 2012 in the College’s Perlman Teaching Museum. In the Kaemmer Family Gallery, “Running the Numbers: Portraits of Mass Consumption” presents large but intricate color images based on statistics to visually dramatize aspects of contemporary American culture. In the adjoining Braucher Gallery, “A Complex Weave: Women and Identity in Contemporary Art” reveals the ongoing vitality of the Feminist artist movement with works by 17 contemporary women artists exploring aspects of identity through painting, drawing, needlework, photography and other media. Both exhibits will be on display Friday, January 13 through Sunday, March 11, 2012. Gallery admission is free and open to the public.
This exhibition focuses on the rich artistic and cultural exchange that has taken place between Japan and the US since WWII. Tracing the remarkable career of Yoshida Hodaka, the exhibition explores issues of cultural identity and globalization for Japanese and Japanese Americans.
