Home In Their Eyes: Images and Stor...

Ongoing through Thursday, June 2, 2016

This exhibition illustrates the meanings of home in the eyes of the residents of Yanxia village in Zhejiang Province, China, a small lineage-based settlement in rural China. These photographs are extracted from my dissertation, which examines the ways in which traditions have affected the meaning of home for people living in Yanxia. During my research, I distributed single-use cameras to the participants and asked them to take photographs of meaningful aspects of their home. I then followed with semi-structured in-depth interviews on the content of the photographs. Twenty-two photographs taken by eighteen participants are included in this exhibition. Each photograph is accompanied by a short biographic sketch of the photographer and the personal stories behind the photograph that constitute his or her understanding of home.

Tunnel Vision: A Selection of Tunnel, Pop-up and Movable Books from the Rare Books Department

Tunnel Vision features a selection of pieces from the rare book collections produced using various paper manipulations to create the illusion of depth — framing and narrowing the viewers’ perspective. This exhibition is the result of a collaboration between the Book Arts Program, the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, and the Rare Books Department. It coincides with two events (see below) inspired by Nancy Holt’s famous land art piece, Sun Tunnels, located in Utah’s west desert. Campus LocationsMarriott Library - J. Willard (M LIB)
