The Willfulness of Objects The Bass Museum of Art
In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change.
The Willfulness of Objects presents a selection of works from The Bass' collection, many newly acquired, by artists who utilize found, altered, recycled, or transformed everyday objects as their materials to explore facets of human nature, history, and its surrounding environment. The exhibition includes works by Cerith Wyn Evans, Tavares Strachan, Adrián Villar Rojas, and Danh Vo, among others.
Working with existing or familiar items, these artists create works that encompass diverse media, scale and formats, varying from sculpture, painting and assemblage to wallpaper and video. Spanning the entirety of the museum's second floor, the works investigate a range of social and formal issues. Each work invites us to ponder the legacy and malleability of forms, and their meaning.
