Walter Phillips Gallery Permanent Collection
February 11 to May 28, 2017
Walter Phillips Gallery, Main Space
The permanent collection of Walter Phillips Gallery is displayed in the spaces and hotels in which people retreat, sleep, dream, write, and make all over campus.
In 2012, artist Marie-Michelle Deschamps wrote, "The bed is the remote, deserted island where we live alone or as a duo; the hotel is the archipelago."
The works in Lloyd Hall, one of the hotels on campus, float within a parallel collection to the main collection-a furtive and rich archipelago if you will-with many acquired
in the 1980s after a series of 'artist-in-residence' exhibitions in the Walter Phillips Gallery.
The collection's initial mandate was loose, including many works that were left behind after residencies,
but since has been formalized for the commission and acquisition of works made on residence or exhibited in Walter Phillips Gallery.
Impulses documents that legacy and makes visible-in many cases for the first time-these works in chorus together inside the gallery,
alongside new texts that reimagine their context in our contemporary moment.
