Coordinated by Columbus’ own Phoenix Rising Printmaking Cooperative, this meditation on perspective features works by artists associated with four independent Ohio printmaking cooperatives. Through a call for entries, two-dimensional works were accepted with the condition that they contain a distinct horizon, by which the pieces are conjoined end-to-end, and visually connected from their various origins.
Reception: Friday, September 21, 5-8pm
Bebe Miller: Tracing History
August 23 – September 29
Through archival material, set pieces, video and recorded conversation, Tracing History explores dancer/choreographer Bebe Miller’s creative process and history of dance innovation. Curated by the Wexner Center’s Jerry Dannemiller, Tracing History complements the world premiere of Bebe Miller Company’s next major work, A History, to be staged September 27-30 at the Wexner Center for the Arts.
