    The idea of housing a large population of strangers from varied backgrounds is a time-honored tradition among institutions of higher education. However, as a result of this abrupt integration, the student is torn between desiring social acceptance and the need for solitude and existentialist reverie. The physical remnants of this dynamic are embodied in the customization of the individual’s dorm room with personal effects and use of limited furnishings. This aesthetic formula privileges the visual over the verbal, creating an environment for the softening of differences and a condition for personal freedom.

    Martin Durazo’s installation explores dorm-room aesthetics using a combination of his own personal objects merged with found and collected artifacts from Pitzer’s archive. Included are large mirrored components offering occasions for self-reflection and relational participation with others in the environment. Referencing iconic socio-political and historically-specific moments, several objects, such as a replica of Huey P. Newton’s peacock wicker chair, will be re-examined through the lens of rave culture using a fluorescent painterly approach. The same painting treatment will be applied to hanging macramé and disparate artifacts.

    As a gesture to Pitzer College’s 50th Anniversary celebrations, additional elements will be woven into the fabric of the installation that reference Durazo’s own experiences as a student and dormitory dweller. These individualized memories will be combined with oral narratives from several Pitzer alumni and mementoes sourced from Pitzer’s archives that reveal a complex and hidden world of varying social interrelations.

    The Life and Times of Pitzer College surveys photographs by Arthur Dubinsky from 1964 through 1978 documenting the community and campus of Pitzer College. Revealing the unique culture of Pitzer’s early days, Dubinsky’s work documents the College’s compelling evolution from a fledgling women’s college with only three graduates in 1965 to a robust, student-driven, co-ed campus with almost 200 graduates only 15 years later.

    The photographs are grouped around themes which explore aspects of college life, including dorm room culture and campus life; campus development and construction; the College’s unique system of shared faculty and student governance; and Commencement and special events. These images reflect the rich visual history and singular identity of Pitzer College.

    In addition to the photographs, audio excerpts from oral history interviews with Pitzer students from 1968 through 1996 will be on iPods, providing a range of perspectives on life at the College. An illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibit, which will include an introduction by Pitzer College President Laura Skandera Trombley and a brief biography of Arthur Dubinsky.
