Blues for Smoke

Sep 11

On view at the Wexner Center
Sat, Sept 21, 2013–Sun, Dec 29, 2013

Feel the power of the blues resonate through contemporary art and culture in Blues for Smoke, a major interdisciplinary exhibition that explores the work of more than 40 artists through the lens of the blues and “blues aesthetics.” Encompassing art created from the 1950s to the present, the exhibition explores the blues not simply as a musical category, but as an influential field of artistic sensibilities and catalyst for cross-genre experimentation.
