Current Exhibition

Seeing the World 

July 24 - October 26, 2018

Alan Caswell Collier / Pamela Crimmins / Peter Doig / Red Grooms / Lewis Koch / Jeff Chien Hsing Liao / Eleen Lin / Hans Jörg Mayer / Vik Muniz / Don Nice / Jules Olitski / Neil Slavin / Neil Welliver  

Seeing the World is a celebration of two favorite summer pastimes - travel and leisure. Featuring drawings, paintings, prints and photographs by international artists from the Bank's collection and works on loan, the exhibition conjures imaginary journeys as well as experiential ones. Like a road trip ranging across time and place, each vantage point has a story with a point of view. When travelling in a car, some landscapes out the window are mediated by human presence while others feature long vistas across a people-less expanse.  

Games, food, the backyard pool, and the beach evoke universal stories of home, family and summer activities. Jeff Liao's photographs create elongated, slightly vertiginous experiences of baseball fans at a Mets stadium game, while Pamela Crimmons uses underwater cameras to capture children at play. Neil Slavin's portraits of hot dog vendors document the urban experience, while Peter Doig's loners against the backdrop of nature look awkward and slightly menacing.

Like travelling through dream states or memory-scapes, the narrative jumps and changes, vacillating between fact and fiction. The title is from a painting by Eleen Lin, who uses the allure of fiction and characters from Moby Dick to create narratives and cross-cultural translations of Melville's classic novel mixed with Chinese mythology. Her paintings about journeys - of people and whales - and of the mind - evoke a variety of possible meanings and the art of lore. To really "see the world" is a cumulative, self-interpretive experience. The exhibition, Seeing the World is an open invitation to celebrate imagination, visual play and artistic invention.
