Opening on November 13, along with Temporary Contemporary, is "Installation 7: Conceptual Art, 1989-1995," a collection of works by seven artists that is on loan from the Robert J. Schiffler Foundation in Greenville, Ohio. The Schiffler Foundation is dedicated to sharing contemporary art through exhibitions and loans.

The seven featured artists of "Installation 7" are Janine Antoni, Janet Biggs, John Giorno, Sylvie Fleury, Jessica Diamond, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, and Christian Marclay. Their work is expected to challenge viewers to "determine the intent or implied emotion of the artist" though the use of tactile mediums and light. During the opening reception, viewers will be able to watch local fine arts students preparing one of the installations for the show, which should be interesting for those who wonder how such pieces are transported and reassembled.--Jim Myers
