‘Post Glitter’ next exhibit in Haas Gallery

For Immediate Release:  June 17, 2015

BLOOMSBURG — Photography and digital printing by Bloomsburg University’s newest art and art history faculty member will be on display in the Haas Gallery of Art from July 1 to Sept. 1. A reception for the exhibit, “Post Glitter,” featuring works by Dave Kube, assistant professor of graphic design, will be held Tuesday, Sept. 1, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The exhibit and reception are open to the public free of charge.

“Recently, there has been an increased focus in uncovering queer aspects of history and reanalyzing the past and present around contemporary queer perspectives,” said Kube. “The imagery in ‘Post Glitter’ acts as a catalyst for renegotiating our understanding of power and knowledge by using iconic images or graphics found from various sources. My goal is to stain notions of history and contemporary culture by re-appropriating the image and the narration that it contains.”

Kube earned a bachelor’s degree in graphic design from the University of Illinois, Springfield, and a master of fine arts in photography from the Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia. His works have been featured in exhibits in Philadelphia, Chicago, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.

During the summer, the Haas Gallery is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. The university serves approximately 10,000 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
