Microlibraries in the Everywhere Part II: Exhibition Opening and Discussion

April 18, 2016
Time: 
4:00pm
Location: 

Friends of the USC Libraries Lecture Hall, Doheny Memorial Library Room 240

 

A USC Vision & Voices Event. Admission is free, but an RSVP is required.

  • USC Students, Faculty, Staff RSVP
  • USC Alumni RSVP
  • General Public RSVP

Join us for the opening of the Microlibraries in the Everywhere exhibit in Doheny Memorial Library, featuring a discussion with California State Librarian Greg Lucas, USC professor of architecture Lee Olvera, and the creators of ten new microlibraries.

 

What are the moral and ethical dimensions of free access to knowledge? How can the design of a space shape the experience of interacting with information? When access to information is mediated by technology, corporate interests, government policies, and the limitations of physical space and media, what mechanisms remain for a student, or any engaged person, to determine the truth?

 

Microlibraries in the Everywhere will explore these questions with an exhibition of ten unique microlibraries created collaboratively by USC professor of architecture Lee Olvera, students in the USC Master of Management in Library and Information Science Program, and the USC Sidney Harman Academy for Polymathic Study. The microlibraries will contain unique and freely available collections of books and other materials, functioning as pieces of public art, vessels of information, and sites of curated knowledge that interact with historic and present communities of inquiry across campus.

 

The Microlibraries in the Everywhere exhibition will be on view in Doheny Memorial Library from April 5 to April 15. By April 22, ten exciting collaboratively created microlibraries will be installed in locations all over campus.

 

Organized by the USC LibrariesUSC School of Architecture, and USC Sidney Harman Academy for Polymathic Study.

Microlibraries in the Everywhere will explore these questions with an exhibition of ten unique microlibraries created collaboratively by USC professor of architecture Lee Olvera, students in the USC Master of Management in Library and Information Science Program, the USC Sidney Harman Academy for Polymathic Study—and perhaps you.

USC students will participate in shaping these future microlibraries by helping to craft their appearance, thematic focus, and contents. Professor Lee Olvera of the USC School of Architecture and Los Angeles–based curators or creators of microlibraries will guide the walking tour of future microlibrary sites.

Campsites Exhibition Lecture & Reception

March 21, 2016
Time: 
5:30pm
Location: 

Verle Annis Gallery, Harris Hall

Martin Hogue will be giving a lecture in conjunction with his exhibit, 925,000 Campsites, which is on view in the Verle Annis Gallery through March 25. The lecture will be followed by a reception. All are welcome to attend.
 
925,000 Campsites is Martin Hogue's most recent exhibit of research and drawings. Centered on camping culture in the United States, 925,000 Campsites interrogates the discrepancies that exist between the deeply cherished American ideal of ruggedness and the desire for an increasingly sophisticated range of utilities and conveniences. Campgrounds indeed commodify into multiple "sites" — nearly one million of them in the United States, as the title of the exhibit suggests — the locus of this singular experience. Serviced by extensive networks of infrastructure and populated with trailers and $300,000 RVs, campgrounds celebrate a unique form of American ingenuity in which intersecting narratives and desires (wilderness, individuality, access, speed, comfort, nostalgia, profit) have become strangely and powerfully hybridized

 

BIO
Martin Hogue teaches landscape architecture in the College of Environmental Science and Forestry at the State University of New York. Trained as an architect and a landscape architect, and working primarily with analytical drawings as a mode of inquiry, Hogue's research explores the notion of "site" as a cultural construction — specifically, the mechanisms by which a specific location becomes invested with the unique potential to acquire this designation. His work has been widely published and displayed in solo exhibits at over 25 venues across the United States, including The Ohio State University, Cornell University, WUHO Gallery in Los Angeles, the Urban Center in New York, and the Center for Land Use Interpretation.
