When deciding to curate this show, I looked at the working methods of the various artists and their systems of variety within a studio practice. I took as my lead an exhibit I previously curated that was inspired by the strange function of quarks at the quantum level. As with that show, I believe this larger grouping of artists will result in a dynamic exhibit of contradictions and unique approaches. Specifically, with each artist there is a shaping of reality, materially speaking, or a defining of reality in terms of content. ~Curator Fred Fleisher
Exhibiting artists include Jude Broughan, Marguerite Day, Ketta Loannidou, Joanne Leah, Tricia McLaughlin, Helen O’Leary, Rachel Phillips, Laurie Riccadonna,
Adie Russell, Savannah Spirit, and Woolpunk.
The inspiration for this exhibition comes directly from Georgia Brooks. As a young woman Georgia had heard that you could find anything on 42nd Street in New York City. So, she set out to find some books–books that might somehow relate to her as a lesbian. The books Ms. Brooks found, 'helped me to not feel isolated and gave me hope that I might find a lesbian, or some lesbians, so eventually I found a lot of them.' ~Curators Brusco & Mingst
A World Where We Belong exhibition highlights Hudson County artists, writers, and musicians sharing seminal works of art, writing, music, and objects that, like Ms. Brooks, helped them find themselves reflected in the world at large.
The Benjamin J. Dineen III and Dennis C. Hull Gallery supports local artists through a variety of solo exhibitions throughout the College campus. Spring semester exhibitions include Meg Klim and Christine Vidal DaCruz featured at both campus libraries.
