Dorothy Cross @ Modern Art Oxford

11 June 2016 - 19 August 2016

KALEIDOSCOPE is a ear long series of interlinking exhibitions, performances and events, presenting an unmissable opportunity to reflect on some of the great moments in Modern Art Oxford’s history.   The exhibition does not aim to be a definitive history, but it offers a snapshot of some of the many highlights in our history and reflects on some of the key ideas in contemporary art over the past half a century. Drawing on Sol LeWitt’s assertion that “conceptual artists are mystics rather than rationalists. They leap to conclusions which logic cannot reach,” this show explores new forms of knowledge. The artists all provide unconventional perspectives that eschew traditional logic. These new modes of expression are increasingly important in a world dominated by the visual, with images channelled ever more rapidly through advertising, smartphones and social media. Featuring Karla Black, Daniel Buren, Dorothy Cross, Ibrahim El-Salahi, Dan Graham, Sol LeWitt, Yoko Ono and Amy Sillman.
