Reed Gallery Current Exhibit

Reed Gallery

The Dorothy W. & C. Lawson Reed, Jr. Gallery is located on the fifth floor of the DAAP Aronoff complex and is the largest of the DAAP Galleries.  Located at the heart of the DAAP complex, the Reed Gallery provides a vibrant setting for DAAP students and the regional arts community in which to engage in meaningful discussions about the current state of visual culture.  With a focus on current trends and practices, gallery exhibition themes range from Art to Fashion and address all of the fields of study within the college of DAAP.  While the focus of the DAAP galleries is contemporary practice, the galleries do present exhibitions that approach practice historically by examining a process, a school of thought, or an individual of significance that exemplify the foundations of contemporary practice.  Within an exhibition season, students and professionals alike are represented through a serious of group and solo exhibitions that address a wide range of visual media.

The location of the Reed Gallery provides countless opportunities for professors and students to engage in discussion within the gallery space.  Here they can directly address issues relating to their studies, as the gallery may provide examples of work to inspire dialogue and act as an extension and compliment to their class and studio work.  Additionally, the Reed Gallery is staffed by current students in order to provide practical experience working within a professional setting while aiding as a learning tool for individuals who are interested in the processes related to museum and gallery operations.

The DAAP Galleries are proud to present the 2021 MSA Juried exhibition,

and in conjunction with the MSA: Interdisciplinary Sculpture Conference 2021.

The Mid-South Sculpture Alliance is an affiliate organization of the International Sculpture Center (ISC). The MSA is a non-profit that seeks to advance the creation and awareness of sculpture in its many and varied forms, to promote a supportive environment for sculpture and sculptors, and to create opportunities for its members through exhibition, education, and networking events centered on traditional and contemporary approaches to sculpture. It seeks to advance the understanding that sculpture educates, affects social change, and engages artists, art professionals, and the community in dialogue.

Shin’s innovative work has been widely exhibited in over 150 major museums and cultural institutions, including solo exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC, and The Asian Art Museum in San Francisco among others.
