"BodySpace"
2001-02-18 until 2001-05-27
Baltimore Museum of Art
Baltimore, MD, USA

At once ordinary and magical, whimsical and cerebral, BodySpace is an adventurous contemporary art exhibition that brings together the provocative and exciting work of nine internationally recognized artists.

From a full-scale silk replica of a traditional 18th-century Korean home to a beaded curtain that evokes shimmering water as well as the swinging '60s, these large three-dimensional works blur the boundaries between art and craft, industrial and handmade, public and private, visual and experiential, and the body and its physical surroundings.

Featuring recent work by Robert Gober, Sowon Kwon, Claudia Matzko, Josiah McElheny, Ernesto Neto, Cady Noland, David Schafer, Do-Ho Suh, and Felix Gonzalez-Torres, BodySpace explores the use of the body as a way to understand the world around us and prompts visitors to use their senses as a means of perceiving their surroundings and acquiring knowledge. In fact, two of the artworks in BodySpace may be touched, and even entered, by the viewer, breaking down the do not touch barrier of many museums.
