Institution Walker Art Center

This  collector set explores new ways to consider contemporary art.  The concepts go beyond the basic building blocks of art--line, shape, color--allowing students to have a richer conversation and deeper understanding of the art they are viewing.

The tour, designed for the Art Today and Tomorrow pilot, focuses on appropriation, hybridity and performance.  At the end of the set there are suggested works that illustrate the elements of time and space.  It would be possible to fashion a survey tour of all 5 elements.  Many of the artworks explore more than one of these elements.
