Exhibit: No Legacy || Literatura Electrónica
March 11 – September 2, 2016 every day | Bernice Layne Brown Gallery Doe Library

Exhibit poster abstract imageThis exhibition, NL||LE, presents a collection of digital works of literature—in Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan as well as English—side by side with experimental print materials from the past century. Meant to be read on computers and other digital devices, the electronic stories and poems reveal new ideas about literary and media developments and encourage visitors to interact with the machines. Exhibit cases and tables were designed by students in a Berkeley Center for New Media seminar. Through the use of vintage computing equipment, NL||LE also highlights challenges involved in the preservation of electronic literature.

Exhibit: Cecilia Edefalk
June 29 – October 16, 2016 every Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday | 11 a.m.-7 p.m. | Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Sculpture by Cecilia EdefalkEnjoy an exhibition of the work of Stockholm-based artist Cecilia Edefalk (b. 1954), whose work probes the uncertain nature of historical memory, time, and the visionary role of light. While Edefalk’s practice is intuitive and deeply personal, she variously explores notions of originality and multiplicity through a consistent use of repetition and seriality. Her attentive and reflective approach is evident in her paintings, photographs, watercolors, and sculptures.

Exhibit: The Origins of The National Park Service
February 26 – December 23, 2016 every day | Rowell Cases & 2nd floor corridor between The Bancroft Library and Doe Library Bancroft Library

Mt. Rainier parkSigned by President Woodrow Wilson in August 1916, the Organic Act created the National Park Service, the federal bureau that protects our national parks and monuments. Several UC Berkeley alumni with conservationist interests and the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco played key roles in its development. This exhibition explores the origins of the NPS with materials drawn from the University Archives and The Bancroft Library collections.
