Along with its permanent collection, Storm King hosts several special exhibitions per year, and there are two happening right now. Special exhibits can be hosted outside and integrate the land and sky or indoors in the gallery.
Dennis Oppenhiem: Terrestrial Studio is a very special exhibition that reflects on his work in the “Terrestrial Studio”. On display, will be the Dead Furrow and the Wishing the Mountains Madness. During this exhibition, Earthworks historian Suzaan Boettger will be at the Art Center to discuss the work of Dennis Oppenhiem. These works reflect the tension between what is natural and what is built. These earthworks show that the most innovative art there is can be in what nature already provides to us.
Outlooks: Josephine Halvorson presents Measures. This exhibition is hosting three new works that correlate directly with Storm King’s landscape. Halvorson created large painted rulers, or measures, referencing methods of measuring time and space. Halvorson is famous for painting on-site, using the environment as a reference to transfer its energy into the paint. These painted sculptures are made to enhance the curiosity of oneself of the environment, and their place within it. It is also meant to create a situation for one to think about duration, distance, proximity, and the history of art and nature in the amazing landscape of the Storm King Art Center.
These exhibitions are truly one-of-a-kind events that will create a memory that will last a lifetime. These events will be going on from May 14th-Nov 13th 2016. Photo: Storm King Art Center
