MOMENTUM: AN EXPERIMENT IN THE UNEXPECTED
Thursday, October 2, 2014–Sunday, February 22, 2015
Momentum sets out to disrupt the status quo and show that art is anything but just an inanimate object. This exhibition reflects on SJMA’s passages as an institution by looking at works in the collection from various eras in which artists explore notions of movement and the passage of time—two subjects that are not at all mutually exclusive. On view will be works by Alexander Calder, Jim Campbell, Sonia Gechtoff, Il Lee, Deborah Oropallo, Tony Oursler, Alan Rath, Jennifer Steinkamp, Tam Van Tran, Leo Villareal, and others. For its forty-fifth anniversary, SJMA invited creative movers and shakers from the realms of design, comedy, performance, music, writing, dance, and other fields to disrupt this exhibition of its permanent collection with their personal artistic responses to the art on view. Their interventions can take whatever form and be in whatever media, and in whatever scale, they so choose:
To cap it off, visitors will be invited to “talk back” in turn to the exhibition through equally unexpected, open-ended, and self-curated modes of participation.
