Joan Livingstone 


October 20 through November 19, 2006

Where: Dorothy Uber Bryan Gallery


Membranes-Margins-Disruptions includes sculptures with vibrant colors and rich abstract forms that use suggestive fragments to evoke the human body and the unavoidably physical aspects of being alive. Livingstone's work challenges viewers to visually and viscerally explore their own perspectives regarding sexuality,intimacy, and desire.


Joan Livingstone is an important figure in contemporary sculpture. Her work has been presented in numerous national and international exhibitions, and resides in the permanent collections of museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. Livingstone is Professor and Chair in the Department of Fiber and Material Studies at the School of Art Institute of Chicago.

CLARISSA SLIGH: Jake in Transition from Female to Male


August 22 through September 17, 2006

Where: Willard Wankelman Gallery


A traveling exhibition courtesy of the Visual Studies Workshop.

The images in this thought-provoking exhibition chronicle a female to male sex change and juxtapose this process with a pre-Civil War account of two slaves escape in disguise from a Virginia plantation. In providing these two narratives, African-American photographer Clarissa Sligh asks each of us to explore how our own values and perspectives shape what we experience and how we express it.

This exhibition is possible through the generous support of the Ohio Arts Council and the BGSU Ethnic Cultural Arts Program.
