On the Radio
From a wildlife rescue van to a display featuring stuffed cats, rats, raccoons and possums, Mark Dion’s work is decidedly unlike anything else you’ll see in an art museum. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 shows how Dion’s ongoing exhibition at USF may change how you look at both nature and art.
Radio - During "Morning Edition" on WUSF 89.7 Tuesday after the 6:30 AM and 8:30 AM newscasts | During "All Things Considered" on WUSF 89.7 Tuesday at 5:44 PM | After "Florida Matters" on WSMR 89.1 Monday at 10:30 PM
Television - Tuesdays at 11:55 AM and 8:55 PM, and various times throughout the rest of the week
Graphic artist Mark Dion explains what the exhibit’s title, “Troubleshooting,” means; how natural history museums inspire his work; what some of the unusual objects he uses mean; and who should visit his exhibition.
USF Contemporary Art Museum curator Jane Simon talks about some of the upcoming events associated with Dion’s exhibition.
