THE ARTIST's VOICE
GALLERY TALK: PREPARATOR'S TOUR
VOCAL PERFORMANCE: SHELLEY HIRSCH
"Delicate art that conveys a sense that everything is precariousness, everything is fleeting, so embrace this lovely moment."
–WBUR's The ARTery
“Really beautiful, fascinating pieces.”
Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take explores the trajectory of the artist’s twenty-five-year career, highlighting the major themes that unify his multilayered and varied practice. Comprising works produced from 1987 through the present, this exhibition examines how Hodges transforms both everyday and precious materials into poignant meditations on themes including time, loss, identity, and love.
This exhibition brings together photography, drawing, works on paper, and objects rendered in mirror, light bulbs, and glass alongside several major room-size installations to examine and illuminate Hodges’ command of material and gesture.
Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take is co-organized by the Dallas Museum of Art and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
Major support for the exhibition is provided by Amanda and Glenn Fuhrman, John and Amy Phelan, Cindy and Howard Rachofsky, and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Additional support is generously provided by Jeanne and Michael Klein, Agnes and Edward Lee, and Pizzuti Collection.
Support for the Boston presentation is provided by Robert and Jane Burke, Bridgitt and Bruce Evans, and Tristin and Martin Mannion. Coordinated by Anna Stothart, Assistant Curator.
