Denver Art Museum
Overthrown: Clay Without Limits
On view through September 18, 2011
Clare Twomey has made a site specific work that extends across the whole of the Art Museum, this sculptural work was commissioned to run along side the exhibition - Overthrown: Clay Without Limits. In the exhibition Overthrown many of the works are in direct dialogue with our dynamic Daniel Libeskind-designed architecture; they move beyond the pedestal to the wall, the floor, and even the ceiling. A few extend beyond the Anschutz Gallery, across the entire museum complex. They break boundaries that are physical, technological, conceptual, and spatial.
