DESCRIPTION

Room Gallery 

This project connects the past to the present through the simple act of collecting and organizing obsolete imagery. Composed of images gathered from de-accessioned library books, Rogan’s artwork sheds new meaning on what has been forgotten. This archive of the outmoded not only references the desires of a nostalgic return; it also probes the politics involved in governing information to the public. In the process, poignant questions arise. At what moment in time is information yielded obsolete, and to what end are decisions made to relinquish this information from our systems? Revisiting these fragments of time now lost, Rogan’s work reaches out to the past imaginatively to rethink our future.


Free Admission.  Public is Welcome.
Two Other Free Exhibit Open at the same time in Contemporary Arts Center Gallery and University Art Gallery.
