This fall, Dickinson is hosting artist and translator Veronika Yadukha — the first Mellon-funded artist-in-residence as part of the initiative in “Beyond the New Normal: Disability, Literature, and Reimagining Social Justice.”
Yadukha is a translator and artist from Ukraine specializing in intersemiotic translation, or the translation of one artistic medium into another. Here on Dickinson’s campus, she is continuing her project of translating Richard Brautigan’s poetry collection All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace into a series of ceramic tea bowls, tracing the manifestations of Zen Buddhism and American counterculture in Brautigan’s poems. Her show is on view in Gallery 204, Weiss Center for the Arts, through December 1. Her work is supported by the Mellon Foundation and co-sponsored by the Department of Art & Art History and the Department of Russian.
