The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery’s next Dunkerley Dialogue will be a conversation in and about Liz Collins’s Energy Field on Thursday, December 10, at 5:30 p.m.
The event will take place in the Energy Field installation on the Tang’s mezzanine, and will include the artist and designer Liz Collins, Tang’s Dayton Director Ian Berry, and the scholar and critic Julia Bryan-Wilson, an associate professor of modern and contemporary art at the University of California, Berkeley.
Energy Field, which opened in October, is the first in a new Tang series that asks artists to imagine what a museum community space can be. With exploding supernovas on the ceiling, chevrons on the wall, and stripes on the floor, the brash design is offset by plush carpeting, raining yarn, and upholstered furniture. The installation is sure to spark a lively dialogue about design, materials, and the ideas behind the creation of a community space in a museum.
