What Looms Large

What Looms Large is an exhibition that examines scale-- painterly, bodily, architectural, institutional --and presence in contemporary abstract painting. Actual size contributes to the sense of an artwork’s monumentality, but scale proves fundamentally relational: something once considered minor can suddenly loom large. After more than a year of primarily screen-based experiences, how do we each locate ourselves in shared space again, and in relation to what? What Looms Large was organized by guest curator Kate Nesin.
