Description

This seven-year survey brings the distinctive, multifaceted practice of Berlin-based artist Claudia Wieser to Chicago for the first time.

Wieser blurs the boundaries between art history, architecture and design. Influenced by the modernism of Hilma af Klint, Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee, who embraced spirituality as part of their aesthetic processes, Wieser broadens their ideals, using spatial installations to consider the coexistence of abstraction and physiological experience. This site-specific immersive exhibition, in which histories conflate and collide, offers a moment of contemplation on the past, present, and the futures we endeavor to imagine.

Organized by the Smart Museum of Art and the Bemis Center of Contemporary Arts, Omaha.

Curators: Jennifer Carty, Associate Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art at the Smart Museum, and Rachel Adams, Chief Curator and Director of Programs at the Bemis Center.
