The process of collage will be on display in “Everybody’s Fine,” a new art exhibit by University of Montana graduate student James Louks. The innovative work, displaying collages that remove imagery from their original context to create a new narrative, will open at the University Center Gallery on Monday, Jan. 28, the first day of spring semester.
Louks is pursuing master’s degrees at the UM School of Art and his latest exhibit explores what lies between the recognizable markers of our society and the commercial repackaging of these cultural elements that blur boundaries of the historical versus the contemporary.
An opening reception for the show will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 31, at the UC Gallery on the second floor of the UC. The exhibit will be on display until Feb. 22.
The UC Gallery is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday during the academic year.
