Opening on September 24th, the Milliken Art Gallery at Converse College will host Disordered Functions, an exhibition by Shannon Rae Lindsey of large-scale site-specific installations that respond to and expose elements of the gallery space. Through installation, sculpture, and drawing, Lindsey’s work embodies notions of disorder through man-made construction materials that challenge their conventional context, setting, and utility. The exhibition will be available to view through October 22. Gallery hours: Monday—Friday 9:00 am—5:00 pm, Sunday 2:00—5:00 pm. The gallery is closed during school holidays.
On Thursday, October 1st at 6:00 pm in the Milliken Art Gallery, a Gallery Talk with Artist Shannon Rae Lindsey will include discussions of her career and art process. The Gallery Talk will be followed by the opening reception at 6:30 pm. The exhibit and events are free and open
