Art Show
Border Exchange | In-Person Exhibition
An installation in the HUB-Robeson Center Wall Case, Rosales-Silva's exhibition Border Exchange pairs two of the artist’s paintings with a site-responsive wall painting. Rosales-Silva’s work exists in the space between borders and between classification. A meditation on the ever-expanding histories of Brown peoples in the United States, his abstract works consider the vernacular cultures of the American Southwest, the western art historical canon, and the political and cultural connections and disparities between them. Spoken and written Eurocentric language, as a system of knowledge, has been historically weaponized against Brown communities. Rosales-Silva believes it is important to adapt to, invoke, and reimagine the weapons of colonization, utilizing art-making to reconnect with and create innovative methods of non-western communication untethered from written or spoken language. Border Exchange can be viewed 24/7 on the first floor of the HUB-Robeson Center.

Art Show
CARE. not convenience. | In-Person and Online Exhibition
Jae Won Lee & Kelly Salchow MacArthur | August 24 - November 20 | HUB Gallery & Online | Plastic. It is convenient and pervasive, lifesaving and the root of suffering. It is so ingrained in our lives it is hard to imagine a world without it. This imagining lies at the heart of the exhibition CARE. not convenience. Created entirely with salvaged plastic, this collaboration between an artist, designer, and an environmental sciences researcher aspired to shed light on society’s dependence and careless overuse, as well as, thoughtless disposal of plastic. The primary material used for work creation was found and collected plastic bags. The extensive exploration of this petroleum-based material has led to methods of fusing sheets of plastic with heat, and making art forms with functional design capabilities (such as wearable art and hanging space dividers) and attention to minimizing waste in processes of production. Text written and selected by Lissy Goralnik. This exhibition was selected by a jury of Penn State faculty, staff, and students. HUB Gallery is open everyday from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm. View the online exhibition on our website.
