Utopia Post Utopia

Dec 15, 2017-May 13, 2018
The AAM’s exhibition Utopia Post Utopia re-presents an untitled installation conceived by Robert Gober. As in the original showing at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, in 1988, the installation features Gober’s own untitled wooden door and doorframe (1987–88), Lake Tahoe, California (1867) by Hudson River School painter Albert Bierstadt (1830–1902), a handwritten Untitled (Joke) (1985–87) by Richard Prince, and Moss Bed (1986–88) by Meg Webster. Together, these disparate works create a temporal and psychological space in which viewers can contemplate the enduring notion of utopia—now from the vantage point of the twenty-first century.
AAM exhibitions are made possible by the Marx Exhibition Fund. General exhibition support is provided by the Toby Devan Lewis Visiting Artist Fund.
