SUArt Galleries Hosts ‘The Rosenquist Network’
The Syracuse University Art Galleries will host “The Rosenquist Network: Collaboration and Connections in the American Print Workshop,” a symposium exploring the role that the printmaking workshop has played in contemporary American Art, and in particular in the career of artist James Rosenquist.
“The Rosenquist Network” will be presented on Thursday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m., in the Slocum Hall Auditorium. Organized by Andrew Saluti, assistant director of the Syracuse University Art Galleries, the panel is presented in collaboration with the Humanities Center in the College of Arts and Sciences, organizer of the 2015 Syracuse Symposium™ on “Networks.”
The symposium panel assembles some of the most influential print publishers and scholars working in the graphic arts field, including longtime Rosenquist collaborators Bill Goldston, master printer and director of Universal Limited Art Editions; Donald Saff, founder of GraphicStudio; and Sarah C. Bancroft, co-curator of the artist’s full-career retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum in 2003. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition “James Rosenquist: Illustrious Works on Paper, Illuminating Paintings,” on view at the University Art Galleries through Nov. 22. A special Lunchtime Lecture with Sarah C. Bancroft precedes the symposium at 12:15 p.m. Bancroft, curator of the “Illustrious Works on Paper, Illuminating Paintings” exhibition, will lead visitors on a gallery tour of the exhibition at the SUArt Galleries.
