Exhibit: Resistance, Memory, and Play: The Work of Joseph DeLappe

Resistance, Memory, and Play: The Work of Joseph DeLappe opens to the public Thursday, April 28 at 6 p.m. with an opening talk about the exhibit with DeLappe. The exhibition will be on display at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art through July 3.

Since 2005, the Jerome M. Westheimer Sr. and Wanda Otey Westheimer Distinguished Visiting Artist program has provided the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art the opportunity to exhibit work by significant contemporary artists. New media artist Joseph DeLappe is the eighth participant in this esteemed program. Resistance, Memory, and Play highlights the work of DeLappe, who has been working with electronic and new media since 1983. He has exhibited his artwork, which includes online gaming performances and sculpture, in Australia, the United Kingdom, China, Germany, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Mexico, Italy, Peru, Sweden, and Canada. A recipient of the 2017 Guggenheim Fellowship, DeLappe’s work examines relationships between art, technology, and social issues. Through multimedia, including video games, paintings, and sculpture, he confronts audiences with his perspective on relevant current issues.

The museum's gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from 1-5 p.m. Sunday. The museum will also be closed on the following university holidays: New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Eve.

Admission to the museum is complimentary, thanks to a donation made by The University of Oklahoma Athletics Department.
