Dialogue with (a) Collection(s): Anne Beresford

October 30 – December 7
Opening reception and artist talk, October 29 5-7 p.m.


This exhibition is part of a series of exhibitions at the University Museum of Contemporary Art in which artists are encouraged to integrate their own works with pieces they select from the museum's works-on-paper collection, which includes over 3000 contemporary prints, drawings, and photographs. In this iteration of the series the UMCA has invited Anne Beresford to not only select works from the museums holdings but those of other collections on the UMass Amherst campus such as the collections of the Biology, the Geology, and the Anthropology Departments. Anne’s unique artistic expressions will consolidate the objects into a thought provoking and stimulating installation.
