January 19, 2005 --
The University of Virginia Art Museum will showcase three new exhibits at a Fourth Friday reception on Jan. 28 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The exhibits include: “Corapeake,” “After Collage” and “Anastasi / Bradshaw / Cage / Cunningham.” “Corapeake,” includes 43 photographs, a 56-minute film and pages of photographer and filmmaker Kendall Messick’s own journals from his time in Corapeake, N.C. “After Collage,” is an exploration of the evolving concept of collage as explored in the work of contemporary artists from 1976 to 2003 drawn from the museum’s collection. “Anastasi / Bradshaw / Cage / Cunningham,” centers on the cross-pollination of ideas among William Anastasi, Dove Bradshaw, John Cage and Merce Cunningham, who broke boundaries and embarked on artistic adventures in dance, music and the visual arts during their years of friendship and professional collaboration in the early years of the second half of the 20th century.
Preceding the reception, Bradshaw will give a gallery talk at 4:30 p.m. in the museum.
Fourth Friday receptions are free for all members and special guests. A donation of $3 is requested from all nonmembers.
