Works by Brian DeLevie

In “Reverent/Irreverent,” DeLevie works with digital media to confront what he calls the “reconstruction of familial, historical, and sociological remembrance.” DeLevie’s challenge in using digital media is representing the nature and interpretation of memory within today’s society. Central to DeLevie’s work is his “questioning of television, film, and the Internet and how they currently function as the primary envoys for word, image, and sound in the modern world.” To view a portfolio of DeLevie’s work, go to www.delevie.net/.

The Visual Arts Gallery is located in room 201 of the Health and Sciences Building on the UIS campus. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday.  For further information, contact Lara Stremsterfer by phone at 206-6506 or by e-mail at visarts-ga@uis.edu.
