Curtis Gander: Viewing the Viewer

Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., and Sun. from Nov. 5-Dec. 4
Time Varies
Art, Galleries

In this show, Curtis Gander trains his gaze, quite literally, on how visitors view paintings at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, rendering their postures in oil and in miniature. The small scale of the work creates its own levels of intimacy, akin to those a viewer experiences when absorbing an artist’s work. A symbiotic relationship — between viewer and the painting in the work, and viewer and the painting in this show — expands just how we think of and experience the observation of art. There will be an opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, November 5.
