About the Book
We invite participants to Recherche, a salon-style event in the spirit of intertextuality. Recherche brings together the visual arts, the humanities, and the sciences to focus on recherche as suggested in Marcel Proust's tome A la recherche du temps perdu. This graduate student-organized exhibition and conference comes in response to Dr. Julia Kristeva's visit to Stony Brook University to discuss the experience of literature in Proust. Recherche presents the community's own investigation into similar or relevant themes, bringing their works and ideas into dialogue with Professor Kristeva's and Proust's texts. This catalog represents the artists and artwork included in the exhibition.
