A look back at last semester’s VERSUS exhibition

VERSUS

In a post last week I mentioned VERSUS, a student exhibition staged in the VCS department as part of Annette Wehrhahn and Emily Weiner’s course Make Your Own Art World: Independent Exhibitions, Projects and Spaces. VERSUS is the second Make Your Own Art World exhibition I’ve written about (you can read about the Fall 2013 Stairwell Show here).

A student-run tumblr created to document the show provides the following statement and list of participants:

VERSUS is a collaborative constellation of visual, auditory and performance art occurring at the School of Visual Art’s 133/141 West 21 St. building between 12-3pm on October 28, 2014. Viewers are invited into a conversation of public versus private, the constant versus fleeting, and the obvious versus the hidden.
