Guest curator opens gallery's spring season

Tempestt HazelWhen guest curator Tempestt Hazel, right, started to pull together the pieces for the UNT Art Gallery’s Lost In Trans exhibition, she wanted the show to be open to various interpretations, fueled by the viewers’ own natural art appreciation.

“I’m trying to take a step back from giving too much information to the viewer and, instead, allow people to get lost in the translation of the exhibition,” said Hazel. “I want an exhibition that allows the viewer to use their own experiences in the interpretation of the art.”

Modern and postmodern works from the College of Visual Arts and Design’s Permanent and Lending collections will be the highlight of the spring’s first exhibition from Jan. 29 to March 7. Hazel, co-founder of the Chicago-based visual arts non-profit Sixty Inches From Center, also selected 3-D works from UNT Studio Arts Professor Annette Lawrence and Chicago artist Derric Clemmons. She also called upon Chicago artist and musician Jeffrey Michael Austin, who will create a piece for the exhibition.

Lost In Trans is shown at UNT as part of the Mary Jo and V. Lane Rawlins Fine Arts Series. The 2014-15 exhibitions at the College of Visual Arts and Design are sponsored by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and by the CVAD Visiting Artist and Scholar Series.

The CVAD Permanent Collection consists of modern and contemporary art in various media with a focus on works on paper in serial and artist books. The collection includes works by American, European and Latin American artists acquired as gifts and donations by generous donors, both private and institutional. The on-campus Lending Collection consists of works on paper – prints, photographs, drawings – and abstract paintings donated by alumni, past and present CVAD faculty and given as gifts by other donors.
