Pitzer College 50th Anniversary Exhibition: Martin Durazo'90

(Lenzner Family Art Gallery, Atherton Hall)

Alumnus Martin Durazo ’90 makes large-scale multimedia artworks, including painting, sculpture, found objects, video, sound components as well as performance and employs a variety of traditional and unconventional materials. His resulting installations combine elements of high-design “finish-fetish” minimalism with makeshift provisional structures. The work’s compelling narratives reflect our engagement with high and low culture and explores the influence of mass media on shaping the way we think and experience the world. Impactful and experiential, Durazo’s installations encourage us to question conventional values and expectations— driven by our media-saturated world—and by doing so, learn to think for ourselves. For Pitzer’s 50th anniversary celebrations, Durazo will select an object from Pitzer’s evolving archive to use as a starting point for a site-specific installation that will reflect on his experiences at Pitzer during the late ’80s and early ’90s.


50th Anniversary Exhibition: Arthur Dubinsky: The Life and Times of Pitzer College

(Founders Room, McConnell Center)

This exhibition will look at the photographic work of Arthur Dubinsky, who documented the Pitzer College community and campus from its inception in 1963 until 1985. The photographs depict various aspects of college life and will be focused on specific themes, including Governance, Campus Life, Construction, and Commencement , creating a rich visual history of Pitzer College. In addition, excerpts from interviews with students and faculty, conducted by founding faculty member Werner Warmbrunn, will be converted into digital files and available on iPods, providing a range of perspectives on life at Pitzer during a 20-year period. This exhibition celebrates Pitzer’s 50th anniversary.
