Noon @ the 'Spoon Public Tour: "Extreme Measures"

Jun 12, 12pm - 12:20pm

Noon @ the 'Spoon Public Tour:

Our 20-minute Noon @ the 'Spoon tour is a fun way to explore a new exhibition during your lunch break. Offered the second Tuesday of the month. Free and open to the public.

This month we will be touring the exhibition Extreme Measures; on view through July 15, 2018.

Drawn from the Weatherspoon’s distinguished collection, Extreme Measures pairs objects of vastly different scale and media to explore their visual affinities in structure, theme, technique, or emphasis. While contrasts in scale are most readily apparent, the pairings share characteristics that encourage further scrutiny. Despite the fact that none of the artists were responding to each other’s work per se, it is fascinating to see how they tackled similar issues in their own personal ways. Visitors are encouraged to look closely at each grouping and consider to what extent the juxtapositions further the nature of each individual object as well as amplify that of its mate when set in dialogue.  More.
