Artist requests public's assistance creating an installation at Herron School of Art and Design

Indianapolis - Artist Leticia Bajuyo is not only creating an intriguing installation for Herron School of Art and Design's upcoming 3x3 exhibition, but is also saving hundreds of CDs from filling landfills. And she has invited the public to participate.

Bajuyo's installation, Entropy, amasses a huge collection of CDs and DVDs which contain pieces of information that have become memories since the information can no longer be accurately reproduced. Bajuyo has formed the CDs and DVDs into a vortex - a swirling world of information, experiences, and memories - that spans the gallery space and rises to a height of 22 feet.

Bajuyo is asking that rather than discarding unwanted discs, that they be contributed to the installation. The artist will properly recycle the discs when her project is complete. Discs can be dropped off at Herron, 735 W. New York St., anytime between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday (6/25-26) or Saturday (6/27) from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. There are also opportunities to assist the artist with the installation. Anyone interested in volunteering should call (317)278-9473 or email nmoshier@iupui.edu.

About the exhibition

Opening June 30, 3 x3 is a unique exhibition experience: three regional curators were invited to select one artist from their city or region to exhibit at Herron. Allison Peters, Director of Exhibitions at the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago, selected Juan Angel Chavez; Jay Jordan, an independent curator and former director of the New Center for Contemporary Art in Louisville, has selected Leticia Bajuyo; and Maiza Hixson, Associate Curator of the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, has selected Ryan Mulligan. Treated as three solo shows within the galleries, interesting intersections of contemporary art practice will be explored through exceptional displays.
