This exhibition combines Beat writers with little magazines and the artwork of the period sourced from NEHMA's collection and the Merrill-Cazier Library to communicate the interconnectedness of the entire Beat artistic scene.
Exhibition runs from November 21st through February 1st.
The Beat artists represented in this exhibition embody unique expressions of the artistic rebellion that rocked American culture during the 1950s and can be considered individual beats within the pulsating Beat heart. Poet Allen Ginsbergs first public reading of his poem Howl, at the Six Gallery in San Francisco on October 7, 1955, triggered an unanticipated explosion of emotional energies unleashed by his denouncement of spiritual emptiness and blind conformity to a growing capitalist, materialist society.
USU Exhibitions: Particle and Wave: Paperclay Illuminated, and Thomas Campbell Lint Basket Supremeo
Particle & Wave: Paperclay Illuminated features forty-five artists from across the world who incorporate paper pulp and organic fibers into their clay. The exhibition explores innovation, creativity and connection by sharing the breadth of work being created by artists spanning five continents who choose paperclay for its adaptability, tensile strength, translucency, and ecological and sustainable characteristics.
Thomas Campbell (born 1969) is a media maestro who parlays his ideas, thoughts, and feelings about the fringes of contemporary American culture into eloquent and romantic narratives. A cauldron of energy, Campbell spins out objects in various formats including sculpture, ceramics, music, printmaking, painting, photography, drawing, and film.
