Sanford Biggers Presents "NEW/NOW" at NBMAA
Sep 29 2016 - Jan 23 2017
New Britain Museum of American Art
56 Lexington Street
New Britain, CT
The New Britain Museum of American Art showcases the work of Creative Capital artist Sanford Biggers in their forthcoming NEW/NOW exhibition in the Batchelor Gallery.
On the occasion of this presentation, Biggers will create a large site-specific installation of a floor rug composed of loose sand poured unaffixed to the floor in colorful patterns that evoke prayer rugs or quilts—objects frequently referenced in Biggers’s works for their aesthetic and cultural associations. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, audiences can engage with the work through meditation and observance, and by participating in a host of related programs organized by the Museum involving dance, discussion, and community.
