Rowan University Art Gallery
Rowan University Art Gallery serves as a premier cultural destination for South Jersey, the Rowan community, and surrounding region. As a center for contemporary art by emerging and established professional artists from the region, nation, and global community, the gallery is committed to showcasing all forms of visual expression and new media.
The Rowan University Art Gallery is the recipient of a Citation of Excellence award from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
Cradles to Conquests is a selection of works that reference imagined and historical global militaristic events. The works utilize collage, cartography, and mapping as a narrative extension of Joyce’s decorative arts sensibilities and her work as a feminist and anti-war activist. The intention of this exhibition is to focus more directly on her work that dramatize the emergence of the United States through the lens of its military engagements and exploits in the name of expansion and national interests.
Ironically, her mapping series makes use of a practice widely viewed as a gender-specific (appliqué, weaving, pattern, decorative) to challenge and question the authority and dominance of a patriarchal culture.
