Evan Roth//Intellectual Property Donor
January 24 – April 12, 2015
Evan Roth//Intellectual Property Donor occupies an irregular zone at the intersection of free culture with popular culture, where viral media meets art, and graffiti connects with technology. Come explore the unexpected with Evan Roth and the Ulrich as we step into a “hacker’s delight.”
This nationally touring exhibition highlights Evan Roth’s recent works from 2009 to 2014, including a series of sculptures made from motion tracked graffiti data, an interactive installation that invites visitors to create their own pirate TED talks, and 1,700 smartphone screen-sized ink prints of the gestures required to beat the 300 levels of the popular video game “Angry Birds.”
Based in Paris, Roth received his MFA from Parsons The New School for Design. Roth co-founded the Graffiti Research Lab in 2005, and the Free Art and Technology Lab, an arts and free culture collective, in 2007.
If you are interested in creating your own pirate TED talk please review this document. This installation is intensive and provides the audience member the opportunity to create a very convincing replica of a TED talk. Users should bring a MicroSD card to use in the camera (video camera provided by the Ulrich) and your laptop should have an HDMI port if you would like to be able to use the projector to run a slideshow.

In Living Color: Art on Paper from the Permenant Collection
Delve into the colorful world of abstraction! Curated by Dr. Brittany Lockard, Assistant Professor of Art History and Creative Industries, this exhibition features abstract works on paper and highlights hidden gems from modern and contemporary artists. These delicate works, which can be damaged by exposure to light, are infrequently on view.
The show provides a rare opportunity to experience prints and drawings by well-known artists, such as Pop Artist James Rosenquist, Venice Biennale standout Jessica Stockholder, and Julie Mehretu, winner of the Whitney Museum of American Art’s American Art Award.
In Living Color explores the ways in which these artists and others use color to enrich design, from quiet touches in neutral palettes to fully-saturated surfaces. The works also showcase the many approaches to non- representational compositions: from the playful approach of Pop Art to the eye-popping effects of Op Art, and from the zen-like quiet of minimal compositions to the elegant structure of the grid.
