Experience is/and Perception

August 26-September 12

This exhibition is not about the Art. This exhibit is about the way we see, feel, respond, consider or experience an art object.


Most of us will spend 15 seconds looking at a painting but what can we know in 15 seconds? Are we trying to recognize it, respond to it, have an emotional reaction or decide if it is worth the price tag? Art at its best is a record of the human condition and our propensity to reflect and discover, disturb and reassure. This exhibition considers the process by which we can reveal meaning and then allow it to resonate in meaningful ways. 


The Memorial Union Gallery is on the second floor of the NDSU Memorial Union, located at 1401 Administrative Avenue in Fargo.
