Event Details

LAB: Empirical Evidence: John Ruppert 
January 31 – March 16, 2019

The Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture will present an exhibition of John Ruppert’s work which will open at the CADVC on Thursday, January 31st, 2019. Entitled LAB: Empirical Evidence: John Ruppert, the exhibition will span the artist’s recent explorations with installation, sculptural objects, photography, and sound as it relates to the world around us. Influenced by his intense interest in natural phenomena, Ruppert’s overarching investigation will focus on the intersection of the natural world and humanity. In a broader sense, he seeks to develop a heightened consciousness of our precarious existence on the planet.

LAB: Empirical Evidence: John Ruppert represents the first exhibition in a new series where an individual artist is invited to orchestrate his or her pieces and/or series within the CADVC’s main gallery space to produce a unique and comprehensive installation blurring the lines between art and science. Future exhibitions will explore the connections between textiles, drawing, painting, and sculpture, and the natural sciences, engineering, technology, and cultural politics.

Opening Reception: Thursday, January 31st, 5 to 7pm

Gallery Tour and Conversation: Tuesday, February 12th at 4pm

John Ruppert and Dr. Stephen Freeland, Evolutionary Biologist and Director of the Individualized Study Program at UMBC.
