July 13–September 23, 2012
Continental Drift brings together the work of seven Colorado artists who explore the idea of place in diverse and thoughtful ways. Ranging from specific studies of both historical sites and contemporary ruins to more abstract or conceptual examinations of space, these artists demonstrate a collective preoccupation with place and setting. While some seek to unearth a specific history in Colorado, others are interested in the ideas and objects that define sites and establish the contours of spaces we all inhabit. This exhibition will include works in film, photography, sculpture, painting, drawing and installation that reflect this singular idea in manifold ways. Artists included are: Christina Battle, Scott Johnson, Jeanne Liotta, Sarah McKenzie, Adam Milner, Yumi Jainero Roth and Edie Winograde.
Continental Drift is co-organized with the Aspen Art Museum and curated by Nora Burnett Abrams and Jacob Proctor. The exhibition will be on view at the Aspen Art Museum from October 19 through November 25, 2012. Continental Drift will be presented in the Mary Caulkins & Karl Kister Gallery, the Natasha Congdon Gallery and the Kent & Vicki Logan Promenade from July 13 through September 23, 2012.
The exhibition is sponsored in part by MCA Denver Director's Vision Society members and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. We would like to thank the citizens of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District.
