This exhibition openly interrogates both the personal meaning and the larger institutional importance of the works on view and will provide insight into a curator’s thought process in bringing works into the Gallery’s collection. A Curator’s View includes a wide range of works by local, national and international artists in a wide variety of media including installation, painting, photography, sculpture and works on paper, and highlights the breadth and depth of the Gallery’s collection.
