Below is the description of an upcoming art exhibition at Cornell
University. The curators would like to show several films whose themes
dovetai, in conjunction with this exhibition,. As a faculty advisor, I'd
appreciate your suggestions. The curators' first thoughts: "Rear Window"
and "Rape" (Lennon/Ono).
Thank you, Lynda Bogel
"Private: Exploring Personal Space"
March 14 - June 7, 1998
What goes on behind the closed doors of another gender, another class,
another age group? Private space is theoretically controlled by
individuals, but is in fact constructed by society. Therefore, it
remains a concept that changes not only from person to person, but also
over time. Artists, in choosing such subjects, provide glimpses --
secretive or open -- into these private spheres, and in doing so present
their own interpretations of the roles and functions of personal space.
This exhibition, curated by a group of Cornell's art history majors,
presents prints and photographs by a wide range of artists, including
Maerten van Heemskerck, Jean-Jacques Tissot, Robert Frank, and many others.
