Press Release:

The Bass Museum of Art continues to reinterpret its mission to inspire and educate by exploring the connections between our historical collections and contemporary art, with The Endless Renaissance: Six Solo Artist Projects. In diverse ways, the six artists invited to present solo projects reconsider objects and concepts from art history, showing how works and ideas transform over time and in front of different audiences. In video installations by Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook and Eija-Liisa Ahtila, traditional works of art are presented and reassessed by various audiences, engaging the works in their own terms. Barry X Ball’s interpretations of notable sculptures and Hans-Peter Feldmann’s manipulated paintings demonstrate contemporary examinations of art from the past. The works of Ged Quinn combine anachronistic references to art and literature to the strong traditions of landscape and still-life painting. Walead Beshty’s diverse works also maintain an awareness of their own histories, providing viewers a clear record of their provenance.
