Muscarelle Museum of Art (Sheridan & Spigel Galleries) | August 27 – September 27, 2019
This exhibition, curated by Elizabeth Mead, Professor of Art and W. Taylor Reveley Interdisciplinary Faculty Fellow, seeks to analyze how humans cogitate and process our experience when viewing works of art. The title of the exhibition is a term borrowed from the scientist Stuart Kauffman who defines “the adjacent possible” as the limits of creative potential and how those boundaries grow and enlarge the more one explores them. The Adjacent Possible ponders an area of science called neuro-aesthetics and offers first-hand experiential interaction with contemporary abstract works from a distinguished group of living artists comprised of Michelle Benoit, Phil Chang, Stefan Chinov, Jaynie Crimmins, Sara Dochow, Diane Englander, Pamela Farrell, Karen Fitzgerald, Helen O’Leary, Lorraine Tady, Jo Volley, and Susan York.
Docent-led public tours are available on Saturday & Sunday between 1:00 – 3:00 PM. Docent-led private tours are available by request; contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
