Wexner Center hosts ambitious artist showcase
By Dwayne Steward
This year the Wexner Center for the Arts turns 21, but instead of keg stands and beer bongs, the campus venue is featuring six up-and-coming artists from various mediums and countries.
But just because the center’s getting older doesn’t mean it'll begin resting on its laurels.
“You can expect Wexner to stay as irreverent as it’s ever been,” Wexner Center Director Sherri Geldin said at a press preview of the exhibit in early November. It's a statement represented in the “Six Solos” featured in and around the building from Nov. 9 to Feb. 13, 2011. Two of the exhibits are even free to the public.
The artists featured include Erwin Redl, Megan Geckler, Tobias Putrih, Gustavo Godoy, Katy Moran and Joel Morrison.
We got the chance to not only preview the galleries but also chat with a few of the artists, who traveled from as far as Los Angeles and London to be at the exhibit's unveiling. Click through the gallery for an inside look at the six exhibits being featured and see what some of the artists had to say about the inspirations behind their work.
