Unmoored Geographies: Works from the Permanent Collection
Ulrich Museum of Art
Beren and Amsden Galleries
News

Exploring themes related to space and place, Unmoored Geographies showcases new acquisitions form the Ulrich Museum of Art’s permanent collection. While the individual works may differ in execution and concept, they all share a connection to the notion of movement and challenge the proposition of “place” as something that is fixed and final. Whether referencing geography, architecture, or time, each artist in the exhibition’s depiction of these elements within their work examines how our relationships to site, memory, and physical structures speaks to where we, as viewers, stand in relation to them.

Given that that the works within this installation reference topics that range from submerged histories and identities, to landscape, to the liminal positions that result from migration, to metaphysical states of being, to the site of the art museum, their movement through and around these issues suggests that our relationships to locations are always shifting. Highlighting works from emerging and established international artists based in countries that include the United Sates, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Austria and the United Kingdom, the installation will feature works in video, sculpture, photography, and printmaking. Exhibiting artists include: Laura Berman, Claudia Bernal, Julia Brown, Sonia Boyce/Ain Bailey, Judy Chicago, Christo, Nathaniel Donnett, Gary Jo Gardenhire, Graciela Iturbide, Mokha Laget, Hew Locke, Vik Muniz, Lorraine O’Grady, Otabenga Jones and Associates, Nusra Qureshi, Faith Ringgold, David Row, Humberto Saenz, Hans Schabus, Tanja Softic, Daryl Vocat, Carrie Mae Weems, Emmi Whitehorse, Matika Wilbur, Zarina.
