Feb 13–Mar 16
On these dates, enjoy reduced admission ($19 adults; $14 seniors and students) and see Fast Forward and Human Interest. Two floors are closed as we prepare for the 2017 Biennial.
Conceived for this exhibition, Mark Grotjahn's cycle of "perspective drawings" pulls the viewer into a dynamic interplay between the large-scale works and the gallery space. A sense of space is evoked by the drawings' multiple vanishing points, a convention used since the Renaissance to create the illusion of depth and volume. These perspectival referents both create the structure for and become the subject of Grotjahn's art. The works' formal organization finds a counterpoint in the modulations of color that play against the vanishing points to create vibrant, three-dimensional surfaces.
