Details

Myths of the Academy is a two-part catalogue, created for an experimental exhibition that set to explore the dynamic between Plato's myths and their potential use in the ancient Athenian Academy and role of the contemporary artist in the research university. Curated by Classics Professor Richard Fletcher, the exhibition that took place from April 4-18, 2016 in Hopkins Hall Gallery at Ohio State University, included collaborations between eight artists and poets: Geoffrey Hilsabeck, Dani Leventhal, Brett Price, Liz Roberts, George Rush, Suzanne Silver, Ryland Wharton and Carmen Winant.

 

The first part of the catalogue, published for the exhibition opening, includes 'source file' images, artist statements and further reading. The second part was created wholly by the students who, by attending the exhibition, became members of the so-called Myths Academy. They documented and expanded the scope of the exhibition through their installation views, personalized students cards and mythic narratives. The catalogue was designed and hand-stamped by Kelly McNicholas.

 

This catalogue and exhibition were made possible by the Ronald and Deborah Ratner Distinguished Teaching Award.
