Getting Here

Artist Abbey Hepner and economist Alicia Plemmons will deliver an artist talk in conjunction with Big Pharma, an exhibition featuring a series of photographs of objects used for pharmaceutical marketing purposes. Mimicking the style of pharmaceutical advertisements on television and cut from glossy magazines, Hepner photographed branded objects against colored backgrounds and fabric with patterns found in the medical industry, such as hospital gowns. By removing the medication name and pharmaceutical company's logos, she renders the items anonymous and only through the title does the viewer gain knowledge of its original purpose.

The exhibition is on view through January 31 in Weitman Gallery on the lower level of Steinberg Hall.
