In Between: Time and Transition
On View: May 11 - Aug 4, 2017
Reception: May 11, 2017 5-7pm
“In Between: Time and Transition,” is drawn from the Hite Art Institute’s substantial print collection, and is equal parts historical survey and thematic group show. The exhibition is organized around the concept of “liminality,” a term used to describe moments of ritual, social, or personal transition or transformation—spaces out of time and out of place—that allow for personal, social, or cultural reflection. Throughout the long history of modernism, art has often served in this reflective role, particularly during moments of acute transition, like the peacetime between World Wars and the beginnings and ends of centuries. The ideological divisions revealed in this recent presidential election have convinced many of us that we are currently occupying such a liminal moment. “In Between” attempts to pinpoint the psychic, temporal, and physical boundaries across which change occurs and the strategies through which artists enact and reenact such transition. “In Between” is co-curated by Whitney Cox, Joel Darland, Stephanie Gerding, Liz Jordan, Hannah Melvin, Scott Rollins, Hillary Roser, and Paige Schat.
