Description

Brian Dettmer will speak on Sunday of Meliora Weekend at the Memorial Art Gallery on University Avenue on the topic of "ReMixed Media."  Dettmer transforms books into amazing works of art that have been exhibited and collected throughout the world. He will discuss his work, which is part of the Memorial Art Gallery's exhibition Extreme Materials 2.

Through meticulous excavation or concise alteration, he edits or dissects communicative objects or systems such a books, maps, tapes and other media.  The medium's role is tranfsformed, and its content is recontextualized and new meanings or interpretations emerge.

The Neilly Series Lecture will be introduced by Heather Layton, Senior Lecturer of Art and Art History.
