Vanishing Point: Hidden Beauty in Contemporary Art

April 12, 2005-October 25, 2005
Location: Nathan Cummings Building for Modern and Contemporary Art
Curator: Suzanne Landau
Throughout the modern history of Western art, artists have turned to non-objectivity, immateriality, and formlessness in order to capture the concept of the infinite. This exhibition examines the various ways in which the participating artists use the idea of absence, void, or reduction in order to grasp the intangible and touch the sublime. The display, drawn mainly from the Museum's collection, features such new acquisitions as Olafur Eliasson's Your Activity Horizon, Mark Wallinger's Via Dolorosa, and Catherine Opie's Surfer #6.
