Personal Space

October 27, 2018 to March 2019

Personal Space takes a look at various depictions of space within Modern and Contemporary art, including sculpture, photography, and installation. This free, focus exhibition asks viewers to consider what emotions are evoked by the places, people, objects, and symbols depicted within the artworks on view, both from the Crystal Bridges collection and on loan. Walk through a bedroom by artist Genevieve Gaignard created in homage to her nine-year-old niece, see images of artists in their studio spaces by Arkansas photographer Kat Wilson, view Carrie Schneider’s intimate depictions of contemporary artists reading books by their favorite female authors, and much more. Discover objects, both real and imagined, that help us define how we construct our personal space in the world.

Exhibition sponsored by HOWSE.
