View two exhibitions of work by book artist and Brown alumna Angela Lorenz. Often witty and playful, Lorenz’s work is deceptively complex, influenced by her travels and informed by research in libraries and archives.
The Hay second-floor landing features a selection of Lorenz’s artists’ books exploring historical figures. A display in the Bopp Room showcases materials related to Lorenz’s most recent work, r.ed engender.ed, a graphic novel exploration of ephemera, vintage games and what it means to be an artist. The novel playfully features “r.ed monde,” a curious red figure Lorenz created while studying abroad in Bologna, Italy, in 1985.
