One Thing Leads to Another...Selections from the Collection
January 30 – March 20, 2016
As individual objects, works of art offer a multitude or meanings and references. The rich information embedded in a single work is amplified when considered in relation to other art objects. In One Thing Leads to Another, works are juxtaposed to provoke conversation and enhance understanding of particular themes. The ideas represented in one gallery lead into the next to create a path of sequential inquiry. The progression starts with images of play-acting and masquerade, including work by Cindy Sherman among others, then leads to Nick Cave’s video animation of object through movement, followed by a selection of images that capture the body in movement by such artists as Eadweard Muybridge and Harold Edgerton, and concludes with depictions of the female body by a range of artists from Abbott Thayer to Ida Applebroog.
