Love for the fall exhibitions

The media has had good things to say about our fall exhibitions featuring the work of Paula Hayes, Elliott Hundley, and Alexis Rockman. In its September fall preview of museum highlights, Artforum called Elliott Hundley's work “ambitious, dramatic, and earnestly personal,” and noted that the forthcoming catalogue accompanying the show “should further tempt the imagination.”  Art in America also called out the Hundley show in its annual guide (which also gave the Rockman exhibition a nod). The Columbus Dispatch review of  Hundley's work described the “stunning combinations of massive scale, and minute, jaw-dropping detail….With each of the collages, the more one looks, the more hypnotic is the effect.” Widely read D.C.-based blogger Tyler Green featured the Paula Hayes garden in something of a “roof garden roundup” in his Modern Art Notes, and especially noted the time-lapse video of the installation. This Columbus Dispatch feature and sidebar included interviews with Alexis Rockman and Paula Hayes, while alive's preview called these shows “profound translations of environment.” The exhibitions as a whole are perhaps best summed up in a review in The Columbus Dispatch (“Trio with Brio”): "Collectively, [they] cover eons of time; the best and worst instincts of humanity in relation to its home planet; and the wrath of one angry, ancient god.” Come see for yourself.
