Description:

Stranger Than Fiction: Narrative in Works by Selected Contemporary Artists
September 18, 2010 – January 2, 2011
This exhibition features works by artists whose inspiration rises from both fiction and fact, and the surprising results of the conflation of the two. References to literature, history, allegory, and fantasy converge in these works, posing new fictions and realities, and challenging the fine line between the two. Archetypal American subjects dominate these works, which range in reference from colonial history, to religious iconography, to 1970s literature and comics, and to contemporary film and pop music. All appears to be fair game for these artists in their inventive, wry, poignant and thought provoking works. Artists include Eric Beltz, Dawn Clements, Erin Cosgrove, Noah Davis, Kerry James Marshall, Aaron Morse, Allison Schulnik, Jeni Spota, Devin Troy Strother, Frohawk Two Feathers, and Nicolau Vergueiro.
