Blue of Distance
‘Blue of Distance’ poster design for Aspen Art Museum. The exhibition explores the color’s role as a metaphor of longing. Weaving together a larger narrative about the distance between us and the object of our desire, the exhibition explores the blue at the far edge of what can be seen, the color of the horizon, of the ocean, and of the immaterial. Employing photography, drawing, sculpture, and sound to reflect on blue’s uncanny relationship to absence, the exhibition includes works by Vija Celmins, Jason Dodge, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Roni Horn, Marie Jager, Paul Ramírez Jonas, Catherine Opie, Cy Twombly, Sara VanDerBeek, and Cerith Wyn-Evans.
