Communicating Vessels: Ed Bisese, Elyse Harrison, Wayne Paige
January 25 – March 15
Presented by: American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center
The phenomenon of “communicating vessels” in science appealed to Surrealist poet André Breton (1896-1966) as a metaphor of the process of balancing artistic inspiration from the interior life of the mind and the perception of reality outside of ourselves. The three artists in this exhibit all work from this premise, although each with a different conceptual and stylistic approach. Their paintings and drawings reflect a widespread prevalence of surrealist imagery in contemporary art. Curated by Claudia Rousseau, PhD. Presented by the Alper Initiative for Washington Art.
