Current Exhibitions
Zuckerman Museum of Art Galleries



August 29 - December 3, 2017

Medium considers how intangible vestiges of the past haunt our contemporary world. This idea of a persistent and disruptive presence that can consciously or unconsciously impact how we think and act is ghost-like in its (dis)embodiment. Ghosts, often portrayed in literature and films as restless spirits with an agenda, communicate through sensitive souls and individuals who purport to speak to the dead—mediums. This exhibition is advanced as a kind of séance with the artists and archival material serving as bridges to an uneasy past, mystical force or liminal space. Occasionally requiring a leap of faith, the emphasis is on exploration of the unknown and the power of the mind.

Marking Time

Permanent Installation

Atlanta-based artist Beth Lilly presents a contemporary cairn to visually track and mark the history of the Zuckerman Museum of Art. Although the word “cairn” comes from the Celtic languages, the idea of piling stones as a monument is pan-cultural and its origins are prehistoric. In treeless uplands around the world, it has been traditional to build stone cairns along a route to mark the way. Each traveler added rocks as they passed so that over time, the cairn became more visible and thus, a better landmark. Marking Time will memorialize the collaborations between artists, the institution, and the public through a collection of stones and other objects.
