Tristan Perich: Machine Wall Drawing (Katonah Museum)
January 23 - May 1, 2011

See “art in action” as Tristan Perich’s Machine Wall Drawing operates in the Atrium over several months time.  A microchip, programmed by the artist, determines the movement of the pen on the wall.  Perich’s final composition, an abstract compilation of soft scribbles and structured lines, promises to be an exquisite synthesis of randomness and order.

Jason Peters: Reverse Polarities
January 23 - May 1, 2011

Jason Peters’ radiant pyramid of light challenges viewer perceptions of space and reality.  His geometric sculpture playfully explores reflection and illusion, as well as the formal elements of line and color.  Designed for the KMA, Peters’ sculpture is carefully sited in the Project Gallery for the greatest visual impact.

Mapping: Memory and Motion in Contemporary Art
October 3, 2010 - January 9, 2011

Maps have been drawn since prehistoric times. Today, with the advent of GPS and Google Maps, they have infiltrated daily life more than ever before. In an era of global culture, artists are increasingly exploring maps as both image and cipher. Mapping: Memory and Motion in Contemporary Art features paintings, works on paper, sculptures, videos, a sound installation, and a live web terminal to address such themes as borders and boundaries, identity and colonialism, journeys—both real and imagined, memory and nostalgia, and tourism and travel.
