Daisy Patton: This Is Not Goodbye encourages bereavement rituals and supports a public discourse on how we approach loss in American society. In this series, Daisy Patton uses American postmortem photography as a substratum for her paintings. Given the immersive scale of Patton’s tableaux, viewers participate as mourners, both for those who have died and for our own movement toward death. On view July 19—November 17, 2018 at the CU Art Museum.
Documenting Change: Our Climate, the Rockies is the first in a series of exhibitions and programs in 2018/19 presenting the historical scope of documentary strategies shared by artists and scientists in their study of climate. Often their study involves recording change. The exhibition unites historical and contemporary materials to demonstrate connections between artistic production and scientific discovery. On view July 19, 2018—May, 2019 at the CU Art Museum.
