JIMMIE DURHAM: AT THE CENTER OF THE WORLD
Nov 03, 2017
to Jan 28, 2018 Official Site
Artist and activist Jimmie Durham (b. 1940) has worked as a visual artist, performer, essayist, and poet for more than forty-five years. Durham's expansive practice spans sculpture, drawing, collage, photography, video, and performance, and the exhibition includes approximately 120 objects dating from 1970 to the present. The first North American retrospective of Durham's work, At the Center of the World traces his remarkable attentiveness to materials and characteristic approach to assemblage while demonstrating his commitment to shedding light on the complexities of historical narratives, notions of authenticity, and the borders and boundaries that try to contain us.
Toyin Ojih Odutola: To Wander Determined will also be on view in the John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation Gallery on the first floor.
