NW Dada Day exhibit pushes art boundaries

By Hope Sondusky/nw news editor

The NW art department will hold its annual Dada Day art exhibit March 30-April 2.

The weeklong event allows students, faculty and the community to explore expression of all kinds in the realm of art.

“This exhibit celebrates the unlimited creative potential of our students,” art associate professor Frederick Spaulding said.

Dada began as a historical movement in visual art, literature, music and performance in 1916 in Zurich, reaching its height in the 1920s. The movement focused on the idea of freedom of expression as a protest against the abuse of power from World War I.

NW has held the Dada Day exhibit since April 2006.

“In the past, we have had participation from math, science, English, aviation, dance, drama and more,” he said. “Everyone is invited.”

Students and the community will be allowed to paint, draw and collage on the gallery walls for the entire week. Musical and dance performances will be highlighted as well as sculpture and poetry.

The exhibit is designed to allow people to push the boundaries of what art is, Spaulding said.

“Art has no definition, and this experience allows it to be pushed even further into the unknown,” he said. “It’s all about the different ways art can be expressed.”

The gallery will be open 9 a.m.-4 p.m. to the public, and admission is free.
