Three Acts: Felix Gonzalez-Torres · Senga Nengudi · Joe Overstreet, open at the Picker Art Gallery from January 24–March 10, 2019.
Three Acts features installations by three American artists who have had a lasting impact on contemporary art through performance, use of nontraditional media, and experimental modes of display. For each of these artists, community advocacy and activism have been central to their practice and embedded in their work. This exhibition puts single installations by the artists—Untitled (L.A.) (1991) by Felix Gonzalez-Torres; A.C.Q. – Cross Eyed, A.C.Q. – Cross Ban, and A.C.Q. – Cross Waves (2016–17) by Senga Nengudi; and Boxes (1970) by Joe Overstreet—in dialogue to encourage interdisciplinary and intersectional conversations about gender, race, sexuality, and social practice in contemporary art.
Generous support for this exhibition and related programs provided by Art Bridges.
