This exhibition is a series of exhibitions at the University Museum of Contemporary Art in which artists are invited to integrate their own works with pieces they select from the museum's works-on-paper collection, which includes over 2600 contemporary prints, drawings, and photographs. It features work by David Teeple alongside works he has selected and placed in direct dialogue with his own sculptures and works on paper.


Teeple’s works will reference rivers, aquifers and the hydrologic cycle in context to systems of economy, society, nature and science. It will include the construction of glass tanks containing water, video images, sculptural pieces derived from bathymetry, vector drawings based on satellite imagery, and laser cut objects. Moreover, the exhibition will include paintings and silk-screens of river systems to create interwoven patterns and structures.


David Teeple has been a practicing artist since 1980, and has created dozens of mid- and large-scale projects. His work can be found in public, private, and corporate collections both nationally and internationally. From 1996 until 2008 he was founder and president of Atelier Lumiere Inc., an art and architectural design, consulting, fabrication and installation firm. Teeple’s most recent work, Water Music, spans a rail-road bridge in downtown Northampton, MA.
