While some museums are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that are currently open as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.
Mary Weatherford has incorporated neon tubing into her paintings since 2012, when she became fascinated by the signage she saw while driving around the city of Bakersfield in California. These luminous, abstract canvases are often evocative of urban life – but they also frequently call to mind mountain views or seascapes, and indeed Weatherford’s paintings are intended as an exploration of the gaps and the connections between nature and artifice. This display at Aspen Art Museum includes a selection of major neon works from the last decade; it runs from 18 December–2 May 2021. Find out more from Aspen Art Museum’s website.
