Project Description

Late Harvest 2014-15

Curated by JoAnne Northrup with Adam Duncan Harris
Nevada Museum of Art, September 27, 2014 – January 18, 2015

Late Harvest juxtaposes contemporary art made with taxidermy with h istorically significant wildlife paintings, resulting in intriguing parallels and startling aesthetic contrasts. The exhibition seeks to simultaneously confirm—through historically-significant wildlife paintings—and subvert —through contemporary art and photography—viewers’ preconceptions of the place of animals in culture. An illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
