NEW ARRIVALS 2015: Collecting Contemporary Art at the University of Maryland
September 21–December 18, 2015
Introducing the latest acquisitions of the Contemporary Art Purchasing Program (CAPP), featuring work by Derrick ADAMS, Wafaa BILAL, Titus KAPHAR, John PARADISO, Elle PÉREZ, and Ellington ROBINSON
Nearly all completed within the last two years, the works on view explore intersecting contemporary experiences of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, global conflict, and personal identity. Spanning photography, printmaking, drawing, sculpture, and multimedia construction, they incorporate materials as diverse as gold leaf, asphalt paper, shrink wrap, crude oil, and repurposed furniture.
