n. hot·dish
“Minnesotan for casserole, almost always combining cream of something soup and canned vegetables with a significant source of starch (e.g. noodles, tater tots).”

Installation Hotdish is an exhibition of student work from the Intermediate and Advanced Installation courses at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Like any good hotdish, the gallery mixes a variety of key ingredients which blend to form the exhibit before you. A diverse range of students whose materials, processes, and concepts differ widely are unified around characteristics common to installation art: the use of familiar materials in unfamiliar ways (starch), audience engagement (vegetables), and site-specificity (cream of something soup). Emphasizing its importance, students considered site more broadly and extend the notion to place in general—something we all share—as the essential ingredient for good food, good art, and a great community. Afterall, what’s more Minnesotan than hotdish?

Featuring the work of Madison Vick, Jaylin Danuser, Roscoe Rush, Edson Rosas, Cody Landkammer, and Dalton Kuzemchak.
