May 10 - June 12, 2014
Orbit 3 by Jennifer Steinkamp (2009)
This beautifully flowing piece takes nature on a technological voyage, and in doing so, stretches the viewer's perception of time with a synthesis of the real and the virtual. The piece advances a message of the power of technological achievement while maintaining an emphasis on how the natural world unites us all.
June 19 - Aug. 31, 2014
Plato's Alley by Charles Atlas (2008)
The pioneering film and video artist is known for his dance collaborations, and this philosophical choreography visually explores mathematical variations, geometry, and number theory. This work, on loan from the artist and Luhring Augustine Gallery in New York, has been called the visual equivalent of the Philip Glass opera Einstein on the Beach.
Sept. 18 - Nov. 30, 2014
A Site-Specific Installation by Saya Woolfalk (2014)
This Brooklyn-based artist, known for combining wrap-around video with colorful sculpture, will create an immersive installation at the Chrysler inspired in part by our own nearby Ancient Worlds collection. Those pieces, which span millenia, illustrate and amplify the eternal questions contained in her work—contact versus estrangement, familiarity as opposed to strangeness.
Dec. 9, 2014 - Feb. 1, 2015
Black Righteous Space by Hank Willis Thomas (2012)
A throbbing rush of visual force born of the '60s Black Power Movement combines with a vocal track that ranges from civil rights leaders and celebrities. In a piece where the commentary ranges from lofty to gritty, you can add your voice by way of a microphone that's included In The Box. This installation is on loan from the Jack Shainman Gallery in New York.
