enticing the eye / exploring the frame

Visual & Media
April 19 - July 6, 2014
Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art
Presented by the History of Art Majors' Society

Each year the Johnson Museum provides an opportunity for students in the History of Art Majors’ Society to gain direct curatorial experience by organizing an exhibition and its associated programs and publishing a catalogue. The 2014 exhibition examines  the concept of "framing" through abstraction, identity, and the medium itself. From reflections in the rearview mirror to the mysteries beyond a painting’s edge, these works demonstrate the striking and varied ways artists formally and conceptually present their subjects. Particular attention is given to how architectural and natural forms construct visual space and influence our relationship to the world within the frame. enticing the eye / exploring the frame provokes questions about the limitations of the frame, context within art history and the museum setting and, ultimately, how art frames the viewer.

Join us at the Johnson Museum for a lecture by artist Emma Amos on Thursday, April 24 at 5:15pm. Amos will speak about her work, in conjunction with enticing the eye/exploring the frame. Students are invited to a museum reception on Friday, April 25 from 8-11pm. Details available on the Museum’s website.
