Judging from the overstuffed cases in Southern Methodist University's current exhibition Torn Apart, there's a solid argument for not throwing anything away. Subtitled "New Wave Graphics, Fashion & Culture 1976–1986", the collection of posters, Vivienne Westwood garments, club fliers, stickers and buttons is a lifelong labor of love gathered by scholar Andrew Krivine.

Displayed through May 10, in the Hawn Gallery at the Hamon Arts Library, the cases of colorful ephemera also include some seriously iconic fashion from the wardrobe of graphic designer Malcolm Garrett, the recipient of honors such as The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire and Royal Designer for Industry.

One might accuse Krivine and Garrett of being pack rats, but they have undoubtedly chosen the right rats to pack. Garrett, who was in town for a panel discussion and a talk in conjunction with the show's opening in February, says he prefers the term "collector."

"I'm just somebody who likes the heritage of things and doesn't like to throw things away," he says. "I'm a completist — if I like an author, I'll read every single one of their books. If I like a band, I have to have every record. Andrew is like that; he's been collecting posters and ephemera for years and years and years."

The exhibition, What We Keep: The Objects of Immigrants to America, is an installation of fifteen drawings by artist, Jane Chu. The exhibition centers upon her mother’s journey out of China during the Chinese Revolution of 1949. In addition to her mother’s journey, Chu tells a series of stories about individuals who have immigrated to the United States from all over the world, told through their own keepsake memorabilia. Each story includes illustrations of their keepsake objects. “Sometimes at first, we may not have enough information to support those who have newly arrived in the United States,” says Chu. “But if we ask them to identify a personal object that is meaningful to them, then their stories unfold, and we see their amazing personal qualities emerge. We understand how the strength and ingenuity of their lives contribute to society.” More of Chu’s stories and illustrations can be found in Smithsonian Folklife Magazine.

Jane Chu is a visual artist, living in New York, and served as the eleventh chairperson of the National Endowment for the Arts (2014-2018). She is a graduate of the SMU Meadows School of the Arts. The exhibition opens September 7, 2023 in the Hawn Gallery, Hamon Arts Library.

Chu will speak at two events during the opening of this exhibition. Both events are open to the public. Parking permits available through the RSVP.

Aquatic Channels: Waterways, Water Resources, Fluvial Imagination turns rivers into lines of connection. Moving and flowing in many directions, these lines form a complex network of images, ideas, sounds, and objects, evoking a symbolic hydrography in the exhibition space. Bodies of water become the conduits of the meanings. Rivers shape human and non-human existence in their multiple roles as fundamental resources for sustenance of life. Rivers are spatial markers in continual reconfiguration. Rivers are political actors. Rivers preserve particles of the past. Aquatic Channels presents the works of Ubiratan Gamalodtaba Suruí, Gabriel Bicho, Laray Polk, and Carolina Caycedo and David de Rozas.
Aquatic Channels: Waterways, Water Resources, Fluvial Imagination is curated by PhD candidate in Art History Gabriela Paiva de Toledo. Funding supported by the Meadows Division of Art and Art History , SMU Libraries, and Friends of the SMU Libraries.

Opening reception: October 29, from 1 to 5 PM.
This exhibition occurs simultaneously at the Hawn Gallery at Hamon Arts library and the Po***ck Gallery in Expressway Tower.
