This exhibition features artists whose works complicate and reorient our understanding of our place within what writer James Bridle terms the “more-than-human” world. These artworks ask us to shift our perspective and invite empathy in; to open ourselves up to valuing relationships over abilities; to elevate shared, interconnected life above the level of dominance of nature demonstrated by Boniface. The natural world has the potential to teach, heal, awe, and uplift, but only if we can embrace the challenge and invitation always present in the non-human world. Curated by Katie Hood Morgan
The exhibition at Davidson Gallery features a selection of works by both Mary Ann Unger and Eve Biddle, marking the first comprehensive gallery presentation of Biddle's work. While highlighting the artists' distinctive practices in sculpture, drawing, and printmaking, Generation celebrates the creative and aesthetic dialogues that stemmed from their intimate and potent familial ties as mother and daughter.
Mary Ann Unger: To Shape a Moon from Bone is a full reconsideration of the multidisciplinary practice of one of the twentieth century’s great artists. The exhibition repositions Unger within and against the male-dominated New York sculpture scene in the last decades of the twentieth century. Works by Unger’s daughter, artist Eve Biddle, bring two generations of a family of artists into abundant conversation around memory and material evidence. Curated by Horace D. Ballard.
