No Visible Horizon: 40 Years of Walter Phillips Gallery
No Visible Horizon dissolves perspective, embraces groundlessness, and imagines possible futures through a series of new and existing contemporary artworks and an anthology of commissioned texts.
To celebrate its 40th anniversary, Walter Phillips Gallery examined its history and dedicated its fortieth exhibition to a series of new and existing works by a group of contemporary artists. As a starting point, each artist was invited to create a new work that takes Walter J. Phillips’ unusual Flying Island (1923) print as an open-ended starting point. The floating untethered landmass he depicted hovers above a body of water with no visible horizon. Conjuring divergent connotations; artists’ were invited to respond directly or as a thematic starting point.
