Schliebener Fall 2022

Fall 2022 Exhibition

Growing Sideways: School Days
September 7, 2022 - December 9, 2022

Reception: September 15, 2022 from 5-7pm.

Anne Reid ’72 Gallery at Princeton Day School presents Growing Sideways: School Days, an exhibition by Catalina Schliebener. Schliebener is a Chilean-born, Brooklyn-based artist who works in varying formats that include collage, large-scale mural and multi-media installation. The artist begins their creative process by carefully extracting imagery from cartoons, coloring books, etiquette and craft guides and other found sources. They assemble playful and fluid strands of collage that journey along lengths of gallery wall, interacting with hand-drawn graphite line and enlarged vinyl forms. Specific objects that have been altered or adjusted in curious and alluring ways rest in various places around the gallery – drawing elements from the walls into the third dimension. The locker doors, classroom desks and projectors used in this exhibition are all sourced from Princeton Day School’s campus through various decades of technological innovation and design. Each object offers the viewer an entry-point into another visual experience and into another time and place. The title of the exhibition comes from theorist Kathryn Bond = Stockton’s 2009 book The Queer Child, or Growing Sideways in the Twentieth Century, a dazzling and important study of non-traditional developmental trajectories. Inspired by Stockton’s writing, Schliebener leads the viewer through a personal and wonderfully relatable journey back through the abstraction of childhood.

Anne Reid

Anne Reid ’72 was a gifted athlete on the PDS field hockey team and a prolific artist under the brilliant direction of Arlene Smith. The talented, outgoing and much loved Reid gave as much to Princeton Day School as it gave her. After she graduated in 1972, her father, Jack Reid, began working with Arlene to create an art gallery for the School. Tragically, as a Skidmore senior in 1975, Anne died in a car accident. Arlene and Jack put their heads together and the new PDS gallery became the Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery, which has been instrumental in helping to spread Anne’s passion for the arts to many generations. Anne's classmate and friend Jody Erdman ’72 has been a leading force for art appreciation as Director of the Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery since 2001.
