Exhibit Receives Honorable Mention in Publications Design Competition

October 16, 2019

“Whipping It Up: A Collaborative Alchemy,” the catalog designed by Delphine Kiem and Roger Rowley for last year’s exhibit by Garth Amundson and Pierre Gour, received Honorable Mention in the 2019 American Alliance of Museums Publications Design Competition. The exhibit was on display at the Prichard Art Gallery. The competition included catalog submissions from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The National Gallery of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago. The exhibit explored how lack of background can erase entire histories and cultures. For the exhibit, Amundson and Gour complicated studio portraits and commercial images, which flatten away the murkiness of life with their cleanliness and idyllic conventions. They used the lens of their current moment and circumstances to imagine what other ideas might be teased from these photos. Read more about the exhibit. See the competition results.
