NEO | NEO – a retrospective of the late Winthrop faculty David Freeman (1938-2013)
Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
Rutledge Building

NEO | NEO is a retrospective exhibition of the late Winthrop painting professor, David Freeman (1938-2013), examining abstraction and modernist aesthetics’ return to favor in contemporary society. Today’s revived interest in the abstract lies in the escape from the realities of technology, and a renewed fascination in material, color, texture and something more tangible and human. David Freeman’s large, enlivened paintings envelop modern day thought through his escape from everyday consciousness for an emotional experience inspired by music.

Currently exhibiting in the Rutledge Gallery
Ms. Brown will discuss her exhbition on display in the Rutledge Gallery. Brown’s exhibition will include photography, sculpture and installation focusing on cultural hierarchies relating to beauty, and how race, gender and history play into these caste systems. Her most recent work explores home as a physical structure and repository for memories. Brown’s work chronicles beginnings, departures and returns to this symbolic yet physical place, believing it to be the genesis where history, memory and myth are joined.
