Toward the Condensed, and Not-Yet-Known
Opening August 23
The Hilliard University Art Museum is excited to present Faculty Miniatures: Toward the Condensed and Not-Yet-Known. Curated by Chris Bennett, Assistant Professor of Art History in the Department of Visual Arts, the exhibition sets out to examine the conceptual and visual possibilities presented by the format of the miniature within contemporary art practices. Visitors to the exhibition are apt to have their perceptual expectations subverted. Rather than being confronted by singularly huge works of art, they instead see an array of pointed statements characterized by intensification and condensation; works of art whose small size makes them precious, demanding of an up close and personal examination.
