Natasha Pestich Goes Down the Rabbit Hole

In Down The Rabbit Hole: A Survey of Jan Xylander Exhibition Posters, associate professor Natasha Pestich expands on her exploration of the fictional artist Jan Xylander.

In 2011, Pestich's exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts's Minnesota Artists Exhibition Program Galleries tracked "the tumultuous exhibition career of a fictional artist she named Jan Xylander through a series of screen-printed posters and other printed matter. A combination of printmaking and social engagement, Pestich’s semblance of an exhibition questions how museums participate in the identity formation and legacy of an artist through one-person and retrospective exhibitions."
