On Site Katonah at Katonah Museum of Art, July 10 – October 2, 2016

Photographs by Corrado Serra for Arts Summary.

On Site Katonah presents eight site-specific installations created in response to the Katonah Museum of Art’s distinctive physical landscape. With projects boldly immersive and keenly subtle, artists reimagine every facet of the KMA’s location, offering a museum that is at once familiar and strange. The works in the exhibition emply formal ingenuity to transform common materials—such as plastic, rope, artificial lights, mirrors, and paint—to commanding effect. Reflection, geometry, luminosity, and rich visual texture are common threads that emerge in unexpected installations that newly sensitize viewers to the KMA’s site.” — Katonah Museum of Art

Darsie Alexander, Executive Director of the Katonah Museum of Art, says, “In creating this exhibition, we wanted to think about our entire campus as an extension of our creative energy, giving artists free reign to explore the hills, gardens, and frontage of the KMA as well as making works for the gallery space. Visitors are invited to meander through our spaces, and take in the surprises and discoveries of art everywhere.”
