Upcoming Exhibitions

Louise Bourgeois: What is the Shape of This Problem

January 23 - May 2, 2021

Although best known for her profound sculptures of monumental spiders, evocative human figures, and fleshly anthropomorphic forms, Louise Bourgeois maintained a prolific drawing and writing practice and an ongoing interest in illustrated books and printmaking throughout the course of her long career.

Louise Bourgeois: What is the Shape of This Problem presents 119 works with a focus on prints, textiles, and a series of eight holograms, ranging in date from the 1940s to the early 2000s. These works build on the raw emotional terrain of Bourgeois’ practice, and explore feelings of isolation, anger, and fear through the recurring depiction of the body, childhood, family, architecture, and the passage of time.

This exhibition expands upon Louise Bourgeois: Ode to Forgetting, From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation (2018), curated by Ryan Hardesty, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, WSU, USA.

Chris Curreri: Thick Skull, Thin Skin

January 23 - May 2, 2021

Chris Curreri’s works complicate and dissolve seemingly dichotomous states of tenderness and violence; abjection and beauty; seduction and revulsion; self and other. They suggest an unravelling of the hermetic borders that have been constructed between us, others, and things in the world.

This exhibition brings together sculptural and photographic bodies of work that form and frame a sense of porousness and consider the tension between moments where things become fixed and the possibility of continuous, nearly imperceptible shifts—the suggestion that bodies and matter can and do exist within a continuum of potentialities.

Fin Simonetti: An Appeal to Heaven

January 23 - May 2, 2021

Fin Simonetti works with sculpture, installation, and drawing to investigate the uneasy terrain among desires for security and control, states of fragility and vulnerability, and the sensorial, emotional, and psychological relationships we have to objects, bodies, and spaces. Her work adopts forms and imagery with corporal, visceral resonance that poetically undermine our senses of familiarity and ease.

This exhibition will present new and recent works in carved stone and stained glass that connect to themes of emergency, shelter, and magical thinking. Resonant with historical and familial connections, stone and glass are situated as both disparate and materially analogous. While the qualities of these materials are seemingly oppositional—the brittleness of glass versus the strength of stone—Simonetti considers their parallels, including their origins as natural matter and their ability to break down and endlessly recycle into the environment.
