Kate Petley: Staring into the Firebrings together a suite of new abstract works on canvas ranging in their depictions from airy thresholds, to steely-cold and muscular structures, to those verging on internal combustion. On view August 17—December 18, 2021 at the CU Art Museum.
Tim Whiten: Tools of Conveyance is organized around themes and processes that emerge in Whiten’s oeuvre: thresholds and transitions; interactions between domestic and creative art forms; and the primacy of mark making. On view August 17—December 18, 2021 at the CU Art Museum.
The Art That Made Medicine traces the interconnections between artistic practice and medical knowledge in Western anatomical illustration from the late 1400s to the mid-1900s. Together, artists and anatomists have shaped the way we think about the ideal body and health, and not always for the better. This exhibition looks at the human impacts in the creation of such artworks and illustrations: Who were the men and women who acted as models? How can we recenter the individuals—named and unknown—who contributed to the production of these images and texts? On view September 2021—April 2022 at the CU Art Museum.
