FAU Calendar of Events for Week of August 30, 2010

BOCA RATON, FL (August 30, 2010) – Florida Atlantic University will host the following events:


The Jaffe Center for Book Arts at FAU Libraries Hosts “The Carbon Alternative: 1980s Book Arts Subculture Copy Art, Mail Art, Fluxus,” an Exhibition


The free exhibition will take place now through Monday, October 18 at the Arthur and Mata Jaffe Center for Book Arts at FAU Libraries, 777 Glades Road , Boca Raton campus.


Copy art, mail art, fluxus and other movements took off in the 1980s as artists began using grassroots print technology, such as xerography, stamp art and video phone. The works in the exhibition are from the Jaffe collection and from the collection of Ginny Lloyd, an artist who was in the heart of it all in San Francisco in the 1980s. Artists developed techniques that resulted in interesting color separation, captured motion and flashes of light captured on the page. Mail art, artwork that was created in one geographic area and sent through the mail to other artists for completion, and books from the Fluxus movement, a movement concerned with the flow and happening of art, are also part of the exhibition. The Carbon Alternative can be viewed during regular library hours, which can be found at www.library.fau/geninfo/hours.htm?boca or by calling 561-297-3770. For more information, contact John Cutrone at 561-297-0226 or jcutrone@fau.edu.

FAU’s Jupiter Campus Library Presents ‘Exploring Gender,’ a Photographic Exhibition by Jonathan Stein that Explores Gender and Violence


The free exhibition will take place now through Friday, October 15 at FAU’s John D. MacArthur Campus Library Gallery, 5353 Parkside Drive in Jupiter.


Jonathan Stein’s exhibition painfully chronicles a year of recovery for a hate crime victim through 12-large scale photographic works titled “Exploring Gender.” His series of photographs called, “It’s Just Make-up” and “The Healing Process,” begin moments after an assault, and illustrate not only the body’s physical ability to heal and regenerate, but prove that beyond the surface of one’s skin, lies a greater more poignant hurt, fear and agony and will exist in a victim for a lifetime. Hours are Sundays from 1:30 to 10 p.m.; Monday through Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, contact Diane Arrieta at 561-799-8530 or darrieta@fau.edu, or visit www.library.fau.edu/npb/npb.htm.
