    Dan Mills: Human Topographies

    Human Topographies presents a narrow slice of the artist’s wide-ranging and decades-long interest in history, exploration, and games and wordplay to investigate networks—networks of power, trade, and migration that underpin societies, nationally and globally. Mills makes luminous and layered paintings and collages about our shared human history utilizing maps and data to expose the legacies of imperialism: war, colonialism, and the forced displacement of people.

    Amy Stacey Curtis: Transfer

    The idea of shared authorship—that visitors complete a work of art through their own understanding—is an organizing principle in Amy Stacey Curtis’ conceptual art practice. Her minimal, yet ambitious, sculptures and installations are activated through audience participation. Visitors to Transfer and mirror IV are invited to touch, perpetuate, and resolve of the exhibit’s five unique works according to a prescribed set of Curtis’ instructions. Supported by the Winthrop L. Carter Gift Fund.

    Off site: 3S Artspace, 319 Vaughan St., Portsmouth
    February 7 - March 29, 2020
    Meet the artist: Friday, February 7. 5-8pm
    mirror IV
    Supported by the UNH Arts Initiative Fund in collaboration with 3S Artspace and Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, and sponsored by Pierce Aluminum Company.
