Sights & Sounds: Art, Nature, and the Senses

Toledo Museum of Art, Ohio

21 Jul 2018 - 24 Feb 2019

This installation of video, new media and works on paper by artists from around the world reopens the newly renovated contemporary gallery at the Toledo Museum of Art. The exhibition presents modern and contemporary works of art in a variety of media that explore and relate to the natural world, by stimulating a variety of the visitor’s physical senses. It includes three large-scale video installations by David Hockney, Takashi Ishida and James Nares; a section with modern and contemporary works on paper, including pieces by Dorothy Cross, Rosemary Laing, and Wendy Red Star; and a series of Japanese colour woodblock prints of the natural world. The second half of the exhibition incorporates compelling painting, sculpture, glass, new media and mixed media works by global contemporary artists ranging from Maya Lin to Nam June Paik. Find out more about the ‘Sights & Sounds’ exhibition from the TMA’s website.
