8.24.19 Artist

Photographer Barbara Kasten creates spatially ambiguous photographs that skirt the boundaries of sculpture, performance and installation. Each image grows out of a multi-layered process wherein the artist creates a self-supporting sculpture, manipulating objects in front of an unmoving camera to turn light and shadow into form. 

9.14.19 Exhibition Artists

Artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset re-interpret familiar designs and spatial structures that surround us in our everyday lives with criticality and subversive wit. The artists’ diverse approaches to making often incorporate performative and narrative elements on subjects that encompass the personal, the social, and political, such as youth and aging, HIV and AIDS awareness, gay rights, and the privatization of public space. 

9.21.19 Artist

Nicole Eisenman explores the human condition in her critically acclaimed, wide-ranging prints, paintings, drawings, sculpture and mixed-media works. The emotionally resonant, cartoonish figures in Eisenman’s Sketch for a Fountain evoke a range of art historical references, from Greco-Roman fountain statuary to Paul Cézanne’s Bathers, to George Segal’s introspective figures.

10.26.19 Exhibition Artist
Language plays a pivotal role in Anne Le Troter’s works, becoming the raw material for installations that explore social mores and personal relationships. Le Troter will discuss her sound installation at the Nasher, which draws on the language used in sperm and egg donor profiles to address questions of ethics, eugenics and the role of the state in reproduction.
