Shifting Ground

Sunday, August 12, 2018 at 10:00am to 5:00pm

Johnson Museum of Art
Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, 114 Central Ave, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

Shifting Ground presents a survey of landscapes from mid– to late–20th century American art. As imagined representations of place, landscapes are always mediated through artists. This exhibition explores how artists connected with and conceptualized landscape during this period. The works selected examine the significance of constructed place and the natural world by investigating landscape as a changing entity.

This exhibition was curated by undergraduate members of Cornell’s History of Art Majors’ Society, with oversight by Leah Sweet, the Lynch Curatorial Coordinator for Academic Programs, and Brittany Rubin, print room curatorial assistant, at the Johnson Museum.

Funding for the exhibition has been provided in part by a generous gift from Betsey and Alan Harris.
