A Book About Death – THE REMAKE [49]

A Book About Death – REMAKE is an Unbound Art Exhibit

The initiative by Louisiana State University Digital Art students is yet another take on the exhibition that took place in New York, and involves a large, student-wide project to recast the show in a local, personal way that has meaning to the students and, to the local community.

Below is the text announcing the exhibition, and on the website set up for the show, there are many pre-installation pictures and information about the show. Below, right, one of the students organizes the works for installation.

Exhibition : December 4 - 16, 2009
Opening : December 4, from 7 - 9PM
Location : 200 Government St, Baton Rouge, LA

A Book About Death - REMAKE is a local re-interpretation of the collaborative, globally produced exhibition A Book About Death that was first presented this September at the Emily Harvey Foundation in New York.

LSU Digital Art students set out to join this project and remake the exhibition in downtown Baton Rouge. The result, A Book About Death - REMAKE, is a 'pop-up' exhibition, taking place in a non-traditional venue in the unfinished retail space and lobby of the former Coca-Cola bottling plant at 200 Government Street.

Please join us for the opening celebration on December 4 from 7:00PM to 9:00PM. Come for food, drink, art and performance and to participate in the making of live video art.

See the LSU web site for the project and pre-installation shots, re-made posters and more information about this exhibition.
