DESCRIPTION

Co-organized by the AAM and MCA Denver, Continental Drift brings together the work of seven Colorado-based artists, each of whom explores the idea of place in diverse and thoughtful ways. Ranging from specific studies of both historical sites and contemporary ruins to more abstract or conceptual examinations of space, these artists demonstrate a collective preoccupation with site and setting. While some seek to unearth a specific history in Colorado, others are interested in the ideas and objects that define sites and establish the contours of the places we all inhabit. The exhibition spans film, sculpture, painting, and installations that reflect this singular idea in manifold ways; artists included are Christina Battle, Scott Johnson, Jeanne Liotta, Sarah McKenzie, Adam Milner, Yumi Roth, and Edie Winograde.
