WASHINGTON, D.C. – Spencer Finch: My Business, with the Cloud, the inaugural exhibition of NOW at the Corcoran, will close January 23, 2011.
NOW is the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design’s contemporary art program featuring new and site-specific work by emerging and mid-career artists. Spencer Finch’s sculptural installations, photographs, and drawings seek to capture the elusive space between perception and the outside world, probing the intersections of science, nature, and memory. Using industrial materials to recreate individual experiences or particular sensations such as candlelight or the wind off of Walden Pond, he also draws
from historical accounts by poets and philosophers to explore the persistence of human curiosity. Finch’s works play with light, color, and time to remind his viewers that looking is never as simple as it looks.
On Tuesday, December 14 at 7 p.m., the Corcoran will host Spencer Finch as he discusses the inspiration behind his captivating work and exhibition. Attendees are invited to join Finch and the Corcoran Contemporaries for a light reception following the lecture.
