Cory Peeke's Exhibit Now Open

Cory Peeke's exhibit, a higher education, is now open in the University Gallery.


Pittsburg State University Museum of Art inaugurates the 2015- 2016 exhibition season by presenting “a higher education”, a solo exhibition of the work by artist, Cory Peeke, in the University Gallery. The artworks will be on display from August 24 – November 5, 2015. Peeke will present an artist talk Thursday, September 3rd at 3:00pm with a reception to follow from 4:00 to 6:00pm.

Peeke’s art are a fluid assemblage of societies’ visual debris that that through the layer of tape and glue allow the viewer to have a new experience to a past reflection. Through the process of collage, these snippets of the past combine to become something both fresh and familiar. Peeke’s most recent works explore the duality that is the transient, disposable nature of culture, as well as the need to create tradition and cultural continuity through the lens of the book and higher education.

“I’m a collage maker for much the same reason I’m a curator – I love images. This affection has led me to collect remnant imagery; the largely ignored and seemingly inconsequential bits of ephemera that once had a purpose, still have a presence, but now idle in disuse. I combine, layer, juxtapose,glue, tape and re-contextualize these bits and pieces of detritus in order to reincarnate and recharge them.” - Cory Peeke, Artist
