The Ghost of Architecture

At the Henry Art Gallery| July 13, 2013 – September 29, 2013 

Return to the campus over the summer! See a great art exhibit! Sit and watch the blue sky in James Turrell”s skyspace Light Reign!

The Ghost of Architecture celebrates the addition of important works of art to the Henry’s permanent collection in the last five years.

Curated from recent gifts and promised gifts to the collection, the exhibition focuses on contemporary works that invoke architecture without citing it directly. Architecture or the architectural dimension is referenced by the artists in the show, either as a displaced or isolated fragment, as fantasy or folly, as the site of ordinary or extraordinary events, or as memory or the missing context in larger narratives.

Featured artists include: Kevin Appel, assume vivid astro focus, Edward Burtynsky, Jacob Dahlgren, Carsten Höller, Los Carpinteros, Christian Marclay, and Shirin Neshat, among others.

The Ghost of Architecture is organized by Luis Croquer, Deputy Director of Art and Education, with support from Judy Sourakli, Curator of Collections and Merith Bennett, Senior Curatorial Associate. The exhibition is generously supported by The Barton Family Foundation in memory of Irving Marcus; nbso online casino reviews Cathy and Michael Casteel; the Jon and Mary Shirley Foundation; William and Ruth True; and the Bagley and Virginia Wright Fund.
