Museums as Viewing Machines: Work by Jeffrey Abt

Exhibition runs September 6 – October 14 in University of Mary Washington’s Ridderhof Martin Gallery
Opening Reception: Thursday September 6, 5-7pm

This exhibition features Abt’s Wandering Gallery project and Museum series. The Wandering Gallery project explores the behind-the-scenes, never-ending cycle of unpacking and packing, installation and de-installation, documentation, and interpretation associated with changing exhibitions.

Abt’s Museum series focuses on the visual parallels between galleries and sacred spaces, particularly religious sanctuaries. Abt is intrigued by environments created to foster contemplation, whether for the purposes of studying artworks or for spiritual introspection.

All events are free and open to the public
Gallery hours: Tues-Fri 10am- 4pm, Sat/Sun 1-4pm
