The View From Here, A 25-Year Retrospective
Mar. 3 - Jun. 10
In The View from Here, Willem Volkersz draws on eight decades of life experience. The Montana-based artist’s installations reassemble the myths of American nostalgia, using neon line-drawings and tchotchkes that threaten to overwhelm candy-colored maps. Paint-by-number scenes in the same candy palette loom, monumental and blown-out. Volkersz’s assemblages echo the maximalist scale of material life in the United States.
