      Looming Chaos

      January 25 - May 20, 2020
      Mortin Gallery, Zuckerman Museum of Art

      Reception: Saturday, Jan. 25, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. 

      Looming Chaos is an exhibition of Zipporah Camille Thompson’s work that explores the artist’s use of weaving to engage ideas of chaos. The artist conceptualizes chaos as the consuming cyclical processes of life driven by a universal yearning for wholeness. Through object and material choice, Thompson materializes the destruction, disorder, and confusions of the world, weaving them into structure and order. Thompson’s weaving practice allows her to reconcile the deterioration of the environment, tumultuous personal histories, and the complexity of her own identity as fodder for creation.

      • Sam Gilliam


        January 25 - May 20, 2020
        East Galleries, Zuckerman Museum of Art

        Reception: Saturday, Jan. 25, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. 

        Unbound brings together a multigenerational group of artists whose work takes an inventive and experimental approach to abstraction. Their works consider the essential elements of abstract painting: color, form, gesture, line, and space, through unorthodox use of materials that break the confines of a rectangular canvas, and implode the boundaries between painting, sculpture, and installation. The works on view hang, stretch, tether, and dangle off the walls, breaking free from the bounds of figuration, and complicating the boundaries of painting itself. 

        Unbound features the work of Romare Bearden, Sam Gilliam, Joe Overstreet, Eric N. Mack, Anthony Akinbola, Krista Clark, and Tariku Shiferaw.
