Ed Moses: Cross-Section
Curated by Kevin Appel & Juli Carson

When: Oct 10, 2014 to Dec 13, 2014
Reception: Saturday, October 11, 2014 – 2:00pm to 5:00pm

The University Art Galleries (UAG) will mount a solo exhibition of paintings by Ed Moses, utilizing all three galleries and featuring works from the 1960s to the present. Cross-Section will trace the common thematic thread binding Moses’s prolific and continuous act of exploration. In so doing, the philosophical continuity of the artist’s disparate visual strategies will be framed, strategies the artist has repeated and contradicted, as his investigation into the painted form has changed direction or reversed course over the past five decades. The curatorial perspective, in turn, will provide a rhizomatic framework to Moses’s oeuvre – a genealogy of these strategies – in place of the conventional, chronological account typically used by institutions to situate an artist’s work within historical movements alone.
