ANDREA GEYER in: What Now? (Or Not Yet)

The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Poughkeepsie, New York, USA
21 Jan - 10 Sep 2023
The year 2023 marks several milestones for the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center: the thirty-year anniversary of the César Pelli-designed building, the publication of a new collections catalogue, and the start of a reinstallation of the galleries. On these occasions, What Now? (Or Not Yet) invites critical reflection: How do collections shift and evolve? In what ways can art help us see the past or shape the future? Works ranging from Matthew Vassar’s initial bequest in 1864 to the Loeb’s most recent loans, gifts, and acquisitions thematize past, present, and future as categories in flux. These temporal categories unfold through the material: breath, body, and text.
The exhibition features works from artists Andrea Carlson, Nicholas Galanin, Félix González-Torres, Andrea Geyer, Jeffery Gibson, Marsden Hartley, Jenny Holzer, Sky Hopinka, Alfredo Jaar, Arnold J. Kemp, Marisol, Kerry James Marshall, Wangechi Mutu, Dorothea Tanning, Aaron Draper Shattuck, Nari Ward, Audra Wolowiec, and Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries.
