Exhibits: Currents

Dates: June 5, 2010 to September 12, 2010

Group Show in NCMA’s Contemporary Gallery

Currents, at NCMA’s Contemporary Gallery from June 5 to September 12, features the work of three artists: Jessica Jackson Hutchins, Benjamin Edwards and Tom Sanford. The exhibition is organized by Elaine Berger for the museum’s Contemporary Collectors Circle.

Jessica Jackson Hutchins is a sculptor whose work is included in the 2010 Whitney Biennial. She has shown in many group and solo exhibitions in this country and the UK. Her work explores the relationships between people and objects and how they both form and inform each other (Artforum). Benjamin Edwards has been exhibited widely throughout the New York area and other US cities. Working in oils, acrylics and digital inkjet, his paintings and drawings hold a mirror to contemporary society, reflecting it back as hallucinatory and visionary landscapes. Tom Sanford paints vibrant representations of pop objects and celebrities. His work has been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Copenhagen.
