Exhibition Description

And yet what do I see from the window beyond.
Rene Descartes

From the Renaissance to the modern era, painting functioned as a window into pictorial space, using perspective to provide an illusion of reality. Abstraction reasserted the picture plane as a window into conceptual space, in which all the elements of picture making could be explored for their material and expressive potential. A century has passed since abstraction became a major development in the visual arts and it continues to be an area of artistic interest and inquiry. The Katherine E. Nash Gallery presents From Beyond the Window, a group exhibition that explores a variety of approaches to abstraction.

Katherine E. Nash Gallery Mission
The Katherine E. Nash Gallery is a research laboratory for the practice and interpretation of the visual arts. We believe the visual arts have the capacity to interpret, critique and expand on all of human experience. Our engagement with the visual arts helps us to discover who we are and understand our relationships to each other and society. The Katherine E. Nash Gallery will be a center of discourse on the practice of visual art and its relationship to culture and community -- a place where we examine our assumptions about the past and suggest possibilities for the future. The Nash Gallery will play an indispensible role in the educational development of students, faculty, staff and the community. http://nash.umn.edu/
