New Arrivals 2019 Opening at the Stamp Gallery

posted on September 24, 2019

This fall the Stamp Gallery at the University of Maryland, College Park, presents 'New Arrivals 2019,' an exhibition of artwork acquired this year by the University’s Contemporary Art Purchasing Program (CAPP). On view September 11 through October 20, 2019, the exhibition features ten artworks by seven emerging and mid-career artists. All completed within the last decade, these works address the omnipresent sense of displacement caused by societal and environmental crises. The works span mediums from sculptures, video, mixed-media, photography, to light installation, including both a diversity of mediums and of voices in the collection of pieces.
 


After 'New Arrivals 2019' closes, the included artworks will be installed in the study spaces, lounges, and corridors of the Adele H. Stamp Student Union—Center for Campus Life for the daily study, inspiration, and enjoyment of students, staff, faculty, and visitors.

 

Works by Karlo Ibarra, Noel Kassewitz, Diane Meyer, Lester RodrĂ­guez, Rachel Schmidt, Shinji Turner-Yamamoto, and Letha Wilson



Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 11, 5-7pm
Exhibition on View: September 11th through October 20th, 2019

Mission Statement

The gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary art with an emphasis on the work of emerging and mid-career artists. The gallery supports contemporary art that is challenging and/or academically engaging and that addresses broad community and social issues. Through meaningful exhibitions and programming the gallery offers an outside-of-the-classroom experiential learning opportunity. The gallery space can be used as a laboratory for emerging artists and curators to experiment and work through their ideas, emphasizing the importance of the process to contemporary artistic practice. The gallery serves by providing exhibitions of social responsibility and artistic substance, as well as by offering an educational forum in which dialogue between artist and viewer and art and community is encouraged.
