January 24- May 13, 2017
In this fourth annual juried exhibition, Miami University students were called upon to create original and diverse commentaries on the topic of military conflict and resolution. The main theme explored during the Spring 2017 semester is the 100th anniversary of U.S. entry into the Great War. However, Conflict & Resolution gave students the freedom to reflect on personal and collective perceptions of how war, not specific to the Great War, is visualized and understood, and how the resulting search for peace can be interpreted.
A high percentage of the works included in this exhibition are prints. This is quite appropriate, considering that the vast majority of artworks produced for propaganda purposes during the Great War were in fact prints. Today’s students embark on innovative approaches to art making that blend traditional methods with modern technology. For example, printmaking processes are aided by computer software and laser-cutting machines to carve designs into woodblocks, which are then printed. Digital photography has largely replaced film, while technological advancements in printing are now turning computer generated images into carved three-dimensional objects.
