Exhibition:
"The Window: Ann Turyn: Lessons and Notes"
Date
October 16 - November 18 1982
Description

"In her series of color photographs Lessons & Notes presented in The New Museum's window, Anne Turyn fabricates a familiar setting -a grade-school classroom in which a child exists in a surrounding environment of blackboards, desk tops , writing papers, charts, toys, or other educational paraphernalia. However, the usual blackboard exercises and pupils' notes have been replaced in these scenes by Turyn 's own questions and observations, written in a childlike hand . These simply worded , beguiling writings in fact address complex issues of how human beings perceive, structure, and synthesize meaning from experience on both individual and social levels. Each of the works in this series elucidates different aspects."
