Kevin Everson: Rough and Unequal
January 27–April 18, 2017

Curated by Rebecca Schoenthal, Curator of Exhibitions

The Fralin Museum of Art has commissioned Professor Kevin Everson to create a new film, Rough and Unequal, which will debut at the Museum in 2017.

In crafting an exhibition for The Fralin Museum of Art, Everson felt a need to reflect upon this place where he lives and works: the University. Lately, however, the space seems fraught and he chooses instead to look inward by, in fact, looking outward and upward—the subject of this film is the moon. Filming from McCormick Observatory on Grounds, Everson is documenting the waxing and waning of the moon. In many ways, this appears a fairly radical departure from earlier work, but one can see ties to, among other themes, the repeated subject of the cycle of labor that appears throughout his oeuvre. While Everson’s films frequently articulate the profundity in every day life via a microcosmic approach that focuses on close-knit communities, both urban and rural, the outlook of this new work is macroscopic.

Conservation

Collect, Care, Conserve, Curate: The Life of the Art Object
March 10–July 23, 2017

Curated by Jean Lancaster, Collections Manager

The Fralin Museum of Art has a permanent collection of art objects numbering close to 14,000. Behind-the-scenes stewardship is essential to maintaining accessibility of the collection for study, research and teaching. Museum staff collaborate with specialist conservators, art historians, and materials scientists to maintain diversified collections care. This interdisciplinary process includes the investigation into the creation and history of the art object, thereby unraveling inherent and environmental-related impacts of deterioration and change during the life of the art object.
