Transcending Time

January 22, 2005, through March 13, 2005
Recent Work by Bill Viola and Lorna Simpson



Temporary Exhibitions, Friends and Cheatham Galleries


This bold new exhibition features work by contemporary video artists Bill Viola and Lorna Simpson. Both artists respond directly to European painterly tradition by using film and digital technology to explore the representation of themes found in early Renaissance and Old Master works. Two of the four works featured in this exhibition are new recent acquisitions and represent an ambitious new direction for the Hood's collection.

This exhibition was organized by the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, and is generously funded by the William Chase Grant 1919 Memorial Fund and the Hansen Family Fund.
