Sleep to Dream
Site-specific installation by Martin Durazo ’90
January 21–May 17, 2014
Lenzner Family Art Gallery, Pitzer College Art Galleries

Closing reception and catalogue launch of Martin Durazo’s Sleep to Dream exhibition will be held during Pitzer College’s Alumni Reunion Weekend:
Saturday, May 3, 2014, 2–4 p.m.
Lenzner Family Art Gallery

The artist will be present for a catalogue signing

Martin Durazo’s installation explores dorm-room aesthetics using a combination of his own personal objects merged with found and collected artifacts from Pitzer’s archive. As a gesture to Pitzer College’s 50th Anniversary celebrations, additional elements will be woven into the fabric of the installation that reference Durazo’s own experiences as a student and dormitory dweller. These individualized memories will be combined with oral narratives from several Pitzer alumni and mementoes sourced from Pitzer’s archives that reveal a complex and hidden world of varying social interrelations.
