Great day at the Bell Gallery today, as we unpacked the ceramic works that are part of the 2015 National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts Biennial that we are hosting.
The exhibition opens Saturday, January 24th. An opening reception will be held Friday, January 30th, beginning at 5:30 pm in List Art Lobby. See you there!
Our team is working non-stop to install Orly Genger’s YOU on the quiet green at Brown University. Below the work in progress. We’ve also got a live feed of the installation running, which you can check out here.
The rope arrives!
Orly Genger uses recycled lobster rope to construct her monumentally scaled sculptural interventions in public places. For the next two weeks she will be building YOU, a new site-specific installation on Brown University’s campus. To see Genger and her team in action stop by the quite green during daylight hours November 3-12. Or, check back in here, on Re:Bell, where we will be posting frequent updates.

YOU will be on view November 2014-Summer 2015.
