Artist's Talk with Nancy Bowen
in conjunction with her exhibition For Each Ecstatic Instant
Open free to the public, Saturday, October 6, 4pmVideo Link to Artist's Talk
Nancy Bowen calls herself an “artistic archaeologist,” and in her exhibition "For Each Ecstatic Instant," you can see the fragments of her brilliant excavations: maps, engravings, pamphlets, stamps, glass, picture frames, and pages from books on scientists and language and personalities and enamelware and customs and hopscotch. Bowen reassembles what she unearths and raises questions about what counts as knowledge, about who has authority to name and label and dissect, and about who gets to decide which game we’re playing and whose rules we should follow.
