“Colloquy,” a mixed-media exhibition will be on display at the Taplin Gallery at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts in Princeton through Dec. 8.
Presented by The Arts Council of Princeton, “Colloquy” will be curated by Anna Boothe and Nancy Cohen. Boothe and Cohen have been collaborating since 2012 on a project entitled, “Between Seeing and Knowing,” and are now presenting, “Colloquy.”
“In the long run, what is most important about this body of work is its collaborative manufacture, its spiritual insight, and its interpretation of another culture,” said Jonathan Goodman, art writer at the magazine, Arte Fuse. “These things indicate an openness toward culture and art that invests Boothe and Cohen’s work with real dignity and insight. We are living in a time when depth is missing from culture, but the artists here are offering exactly that.”
The Paul Robeson Center for the Arts is located at 102 Witherspoon St. in Princeton.
