Both Sides Now, with Dan Walsh
Williams College Museum of Art, 2016
Both Sides Now is a first-time creative collaboration by my brother, Dan Walsh, a minimalist abstract painter, and me, a socially engaged artist. We have come together to merge our practices around a shared interest in spectacle, perception, and encounters among objects and people. The result is a series of interactive sculptural stations—nodding to Rome’s Circus Maximus—which encourages new investigations and responses to WCMA’s collection.
In the adjacent gallery we address our differing theories of contemporary art head-on through a series of oversized stitch samplers featuring the our ongoing, and at times contentious, call-and-response dialogue.
