Friday, April 28th
All Day

Liminal by Kristina Arnold

  • Location: Downing Museum at the Baker Arboretum
  • Time: All Day

This exhibition, containing a selection of glass installations and drawings created over the past four years, scratches at issues surrounding the (sometimes ‘deviant’) body and mind. Examining biological, sociological and, in some instances, political concerns, the aging and the female body are examined not as normal and natural, but as something to be corrected and controlled.

Concurrently, through both a wall-sized, abstracted depiction of the mind made from blown glass, and a series of specimen-based drawings, the exhibition additionally examines the ways in which we collect, store, parse, interpret, and ultimately understand information – both on the individual and the societal level.

Considered in total, the exhibition examines the way we societally formulate and create the “truth” of our bodies, and offers an alternative paradigm of understanding.

8:00am - 4:30pm
