Okeanos, International + Contemporary Relflections on the Sea
Temporary Exhibitions, Lobby
For anyone who has witnessed its sublimity, above the surface or at its depths, the ocean (from Greek “okeanos”) leaves a powerful, sensuous impression. Contemporary artists Yves Klein, Jennifer Moller, and Hiroshi Sugimoto each reflect upon the experience of ocean via distinct media: Klein with his hyper-saturated, textured canvas; Moller with her darkened, black and white video footage; and Sugimoto with his abstracted photographs of water and air. Whether captured in paint or film, or concentrating on water’s depth or surface, substance or void, stillness or motion, the monochromatic representations of sea depicted by each of the international contemporary artists in this exhibition demonstrate that the experience of ocean is universal.
