This fall the Stamp Gallery presents New Arrivals 2017, an exhibition of artwork acquired this year by the university’s Contemporary Art Purchasing Program (CAPP). The exhibition features fourteen artworks by nine emerging and mid-career artists. All completed within the last decade, these works examine contemporary experiences of race, gender, class, embodiment, and personal identity. Spanning photography, collage, textile, sculpture, and video, the works explore inclusivity and intersectionality, offering unique visions of human interdependence and vulnerability.

This fall the University of Maryland Herman Maril Gallery presents Unto Itself, a solo exhibition by Brooklyn-based artist Kameelah Janan Rasheed (b. 1985). Originally created for the Future Generation Art Prize exhibition at the Pinchuk Art Centre in Kyiv, Ukraine in spring 2017, Unto Itself is made possible at the University of Maryland by the Department of Art and its annual John Dorsey Prize. Unto Itself is on view September 19–October 6, 2017. There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, September 20, 5-7pm, in the Herman Maril Gallery.

Unto Itself was conceived in conjunction with the recent acquisition of two prints from Rasheed’s 2016 series “How to Suffer Politely (And Other Etiquette)” by the University of Maryland’s 2016–2017 Contemporary Art Purchasing Program. The prints will be on view alongside other new acquisitions in New Arrivals 2017 at the Stamp Gallery. Rasheed will visit the campus on October 6, 2017, to deliver an artist talk related to her work in both exhibitions.
