Art/Object considers contemporary works in the collections of the Cantor Arts Center and Bowes Library that fall between the cracks of obvious medium categories. These editions, documents, posters and placards, invitations, and preparatory documents point to the way an artist’s practice often flows across media, with ideas or aesthetics explored through a variety of formats. The virtual exhibition includes works by artists including Eleanor Antin, Andy Goldsworthy, the Guerrilla Girls, Alison Knowles, Jacob Lawrence, Allen Ruppersberg, Ed Ruscha, Kara Walker, Andy Warhol, and Lawrence Weiner, among others.
This exhibition will be available online until October 31, 2022.
This exhibition and publication are part of a collaborative initiative between the Cantor Arts Center and Stanford’s Department of Art & Art History. The initiative, the Cantor Curatorial Fellowship, aims to make the multifaceted museum a compelling and vivid component of the department’s graduate student academic experience. The resulting exhibition projects are designed to provide doctoral students with the unique opportunity to work directly with objects as they curate focused, scholarly exhibitions that relate both to their own research interests and to the museum’s holdings.
This exhibition and accompanying publication are organized by Jennie Waldow, Cantor Curatorial Fellow, and Cantor Arts Center staff. Jennie is a PhD candidate in the Department of Art & Art History at Stanford University. We gratefully acknowledge the support of Sue and John Diekman, the Geballe Fund for Academic Initiatives, and the Drs. Ben and A. Jess Shenson Fund.
