Seton Gallery Artist Talk: Cecilia Mandrile's “A Retrospective”

Artist Cecilia Mandrile, whose exhibit "A Retrospective” is on display in the Seton Gallery, will give a talk on Thursday, Dec. 6, at 1:30 p.m. in the Seton Gallery. The exhibit will run through Dec. 8.

For Mandrile, an art and design lecturer at UNH, the experience of art is like the experience of life. In it, artworks are born sometimes in blessed circumstances, sometimes in painful ones. They grow (in meaning); they mature and age. They could also re-invent themselves once in a while. In this world, museums become hospices of sort, homes for the aging works of art, which require care. Maybe that’s why their custodians are named curators, a word that has its roots in curare.

Her work has been featured at El Museo del Barrio in New York City, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Washington Project of the Arts in Washington, D.C., and the National Museum of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
