On Exhibit: Attitudes and Latitudes
The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery has mounted a new show that aims to expand the public’s understanding of the challenging terrain of conceptual art.
Conceptual Geographies: Frames and Documents, Selections from the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection presents 22 works and series created since 1967 that invoke geography to question relationships of power and to analyze the systems in which art is displayed.
The 16 international artists represented in the show, from different generations and latitudes, work in a wide variety of media including photography, video, film, drawing, printmaking, mail art and artist’s books. Among the best-known are Ed Ruscha, Sophie Calle, Ana Mendieta, Gordon Matta-Clark and Louise Lawler.
