"Engaging Representations: Contemporary Art from The Speed Art Museum"

USA United States of America
Engaging Representations, on view December 12, 2004 through March 6, 2005 at University of Kentucky Art Museum, comprises twenty-one works from the collection of Louisville's Speed Art Museum including paintings, sculpture, photographs, and video by nineteen artists from across the globe. The exhibition offers a profound and provocative exploration of how the world in which we live today is represented in art.
Focused on the examination of physical and cultural environments, the artists explore subject matter from abstract emanations of land- and cityscapes to incisive social and historical critiques. Engaging Representations also illustrates the influences of art history and the mass media, and the roles these visual agents play in creating meaning and shaping cultural identities.
