New Mexico State University Art Gallery to open new exhibit

The New Mexico State University Art Gallery will open its first spring 2004 exhibit "Kozloff and Kozloff: Joyce and Max Kozloff" on Jan. 14. It will run through Feb. 22.

c lecture from the Kozloffs will be from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 27, in Williams Hall Room 212. An opening reception and gallery talk for the exhibit will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 30, in the University Art Gallery.

Joyce Kozloff is a distinguished painter and mixed media artist and Max Kozloff is an internationally recognized photographer, editor, art historian and critic. They travel the world together and are working to visually map the globe, integrating popular culture and high art. The two have been married for more than 30 years, but they rarely collaborate or show their work together.

In the exhibit, Joyce Kozloff will include "Targets," a walk-in globe whose interior is plastered with aeronautical charts of the countries the United States has bombed since 1945; "Selections from Knowledge," an ongoing project comprised of small frescos inspired by earlier maps; and "Boy's Art," a series of collaged drawings based on maps, diagrams and illustrations of historic battles. She was first recognized as a leading artist in the pattern and decoration movement in the arts during the 1970s.

Max Kozloff will include 30 color photographs that celebrate international urban life including carnivals, festivals, street fairs, market places, parks and zoos for the exhibit. He has visited and photographed cities around the world, including Rome; Hanoi, Vietnam; and New Delhi, India.

The University Art Gallery is located in Williams Hall near the intersection of Solano Drive and University Avenue.
