Events and Exhibitions
Exhibition: Rosy-Fingered Dawn
Opening Reception: Wednesday, February 27, 2019
Time: 5-8 pm
Location: Ground Floor, Art Gallery, 41 Park Row, New York City campus
Pace University is pleased to present Rosy-Fingered Dawn, an exhibition in the University’s new ground-floor art gallery at 41 Park Row. The exhibition brings together twelve contemporary artists working in sculpture, painting, photography and performance.
Rosy-Fingered Dawn is an epithet from Homer’s “Odyssey,” a portent of new beginnings in an ongoing journey. It speaks to the opening of this new exhibition space in an academic realm with visionary and pedagogical potential. Eliciting the human form, the phrase personifies future possibilities, establishing the figure as a point of departure. The participating artists investigate ideas around the body in society, through works ranging from interactive sculpture to community-based performance. Their disparate formal practices are linked by shared, open approach, and inquiry-based processes that are earnest and generative. See flyer.
The exhibition will be on view February 27 – March 27, 2019. For more information, please contact the Art Department.

Student Exhibition: Digital Life
This student group exhibition expands to our range of interpretations relating to the theme of “Digital Life”. Whether it be charging your phone, computer, or how long your video will run without being plugged in, the reference to needing energy to run, is the concept of this project. What constitutes a digital life? Are we so dependent on our technology? What does it give us in return? Is it necessary for leading a complete human life? What is the difference between a human and a digital one? See flyer.
