Marc D'Agusto: Forgotten Place
Orbit 1 Gallery, 2nd floor Robeson Campus Center
Marc D’Agusto’s multilayered work delves into ideas of transformation, renewal, and the passing of time. Using rust, cracks, and fissures in the surface of his work, D’Agusto draws attention to the past while utilizing images of the human body, architectural forms, and space to suggest rebirth and regeneration. He writes, “Like a molting cicada shedding its past life, my work explores traces of history and alludes to new beginnings.”
Marc D’Agusto is an artist and educator whose works have been exhibited extensively in New Jersey, including solo exhibitions in Montclair, Watchung, and Newark. He is founder and executive director of Gravity Inc, an arts initiative seeking to increase collaboration among artists and accessibility to the arts. D’Agusto is currently Adjunct Professor of Fine Arts at Nyack College in New York City.
The exhibition will run from January 22 - July 24, 2013. Gallery hours are same as the Paul Robeson Campus Center hours.
