fore x four

fore x four is an exhibition exploring notions of steadiness and support. Guided by the metaphor of a four legged structure, fore x four is the result of a year long, multi-dimensional conversation between artists Diedrick Brackens, D’Angelo Lovell Williams, curator Ashley Stull Meyers, and collector Sarah Miller Meigs about collecting, living with art, what nourishes us as creative practitioners, and what provides inspiration in our daily lives. As a collection, the 16 works illustrate a complex mapping of generations of artists who each offer unique approaches to the sentiments of guardianship, responsibility, caretaking, guidance, and love.

fore x four has been organized as a carefully considered addendum to our Spring exhibition of new works by Brackens and Williams titled The Quick, curated by Stull Meyers.

featuring work from: Etel Adnan, Leonor Antunes, Christo, Nona Faustine, Lonnie Holley, Roni Horn, Luchita Hurtado, Simone Leigh, Dave McKenzie, Ana Mendieta, K.R.M. Mooney, Frida Orupabo, Gordon Parks, Deborah Roberts, Pipilotti Rist, and Bill Traylor
