Gestalt: greater than the sum

February 24–May 21, 2023

Opening reception: Thursday, February 23 at 5:00 pm
gestalt [ɡəˈSHtält] n.   something that is made of many parts and yet is somehow more than or different from the combination of its parts.

This exhibition examines how perception and the observation of individual parts contribute to our understanding of our whole identities, communities, social groups, and the shapes in the world around us. The exhibition features twenty photographs and prints by artists who explore time, space, gender, and cultural identity to convey ideas of physical, psychological, and social fragmentation. Curated by the students in the fall 2022 Museum Curating class (MUSE 300).
