LSU Museum of Art Opening Reception: "State of the Art: Record"
The LSU Museum of Art is excited to announce and invite you to the opening reception for State of the Art: Record and watch a performance art piece Can I Get a Witness by visiting artist Kellie Romany on Thursday, March 10 from 6-8 PM. Free to attend.
State of the Art: Record, an exhibition organized by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas, will be on view at the LSU Museum of Art from March 10 through June 19, 2022. This exhibition explores the meaning of records to better understand the world around us. Recordings preserve information. This can include an idea, a sound, a moment in time—the important outcome remains the same: the record. The artworks in this exhibition reveal a broad expanse of this concept and are divided into three parts: historical record (preserving history and re-constructing history); seeking the intangible; and finding order. Some artists grapple with the constantly unfolding historical record. Others use their work as a way to record concepts too big for words or too abstract for a simple explanation. Others employ their artistic skills to order their surroundings, transforming chaos into something manageable. The record speaks to the task of documenting the random, confusing, and sometimes inexplicable, and underscores a desire to return to the existing record to reconsider.
