So Much Trouble in the World - Believe It or Not!

October 4 - December 11, 2005

Fred Wilson, an internationally regarded American artist who represented the United States at the 2003 Venice Biennale, is best known for compelling installations using objects from a museum's permanent collection to critically examine the practice of collecting art and its attendant issue of cultural representation. Wilson draws upon familiar curatorial practices to refashion and rearrange museum objects into unusual displays that might divulge otherwise veiled stories of racism, stereotyping, and marginalization in local or institutional histories. Through SO MUCH TROUBLE IN THE WORLD, Fred Wilson features works from the Hood's permanent collection in a provocative site-specific installation that concludes the museum's yearlong celebration of twenty years in its Charles Moore building.
