During October, the Museum exhibited works by Céleste Boursier-Mougenot. This internationally acclaimed French artist’s innovative work merges the realms of the musical and the visual.
His exhibition, offering an exciting multidisciplinary and multisensory focus, creates situations where sound and image merge and dissolve. Calling on ideas about technological production, language, chance operations and systems of translation, Boursier-Mougenot’s work merges multi-sensory phenomena with a cerebral investigation of the mechanisms of sight and sound in his given situations.
In addition, the Museum is showing Betsey Stone: Dialog with a Collection. This is the 5th exhibition in an annual series in which the UMCA invites an artist to study the permanent collection first-hand and curate an exhibition from its holdings, and to integrate the artist’s own works in direct dialogue within the exhibition. This year, Northampton painter Elizabeth Stone is invited to study the works-on-paper collection of over 2800 contemporary prints, drawings, and photographs and to select works that resonate with one another.
