Oberlin College and Conservatory

First Thursday Talk and Reception with FRONT Artist Barbara Bloom

Thursday, September 6, 2018 at 5:45pm to 7:30pm

Allen Memorial Art Museum, King Sculpture Court
87 North Main Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

New York-based artist Barbara Bloom gives a talk on her installation THE RENDERING ( H x W x D = ), on view in the Ellen Johnson Gallery in the Allen Memorial Art Museum. This installation, commissioned by FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art, uses works from the Allen’s collection, which Bloom projects from the walls through fabricated architectural sculptures. Long associated with the artists of the Pictures Generation, Bloom has spent the past four decades questioning modes of collecting, display, and design, with an eye toward disrupting the world of objects around us, as well as our habits of seeing.

This free program is followed by a reception, and galleries remain open until 7:30 p.m.

Presented with support from the Eric & Jane Nord Family Fund and the Nord Family Foundation.

When you think of public programs at the AMAM, think first, second, and third. On the first Thursday of the month, the museum has after-hours events with guest scholars and artists discussing works on view. The Tuesday Tea series is offered on the second Tuesday of the month, and on each third Friday, “AMAM in the AM” is back with informal gallery tours by the curators.
