De Nue Satellite Library


De Nue Satellite Library


August 31st – September 30th, 2016


Janelle Miller (curator)


De Nue Satellite Library is a program corresponding with the school-wide exhibition De Nue, which challenges SAIC and the public to complicate ideas of Blackness and what it means to make BLACK art. In conjunction with exhibitions in the LeRoy Neiman Center Gallery & Gallery X, De Nue is occupying Flaxman Library and the Joan Flasch Artists’ Book Collection’s display cases with archival and sourced materials that both illuminate and complicate ideas of BLACKNESS. This exhibition will run in the cases from 8/31 - 9/16. From 9/17 - 9/30 the materials will move inside the Reading Room so that viewers can handle the books.

Throughout the course of the exhibition additional works selected by Janelle Miller will be on view in Sharp 508.
