Description

Join guest curator Scott Wolniak for a walkthrough of the exhibition Passing Through: Artists from DOVA 2012–2021. This broad survey features recent work by 37 artists who have passed through graduate and undergraduate programs at UChicago’s Department of Visual Arts (DoVA).  Presented by Logan Center Exhibitions with the support of DoVA, The Reva and David Logan Foundation, and friends of the Logan Center.  ABOUT SCOTT WOLNIAK, DoVA FACULTY AND GUEST CURATORScott Wolniak (b. 1971) is a multidisciplinary artist, educator and occasional curator, who has been teaching in DoVA since 2007. While primarily focused on his studio and exhibitions, curation has played a casual but significant role in Wolniak’s practice over the past two decades. He ran Suitable Gallery, an influential alternative space in his Humboldt Park garage between 1999 and 2005, as well as the tangential video platform, Suitable Video, which curated screening programs and DVD editions between 2005 and 2011. He ran Screen Share gallery for student-made video and animation at the Logan Center, and recently organized Wheel of Life, an exhibition of artist-made zoetropes, at the Hyde Park Art Center. Wolniak received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1995 and MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2002.
