Stories We Tell Ourselves

Mar 27, 2015-Oct 11, 2015
Stories We Tell Ourselves is an exhibition that unfolds over time, as sequential chapters that explore the relationship of art and language. Presented in various locations throughout the museum, the show reflects on a distinguished history of artists who have used language as a medium—dissecting letters, words, and texts and displaying them as objects. An exhibition that, like a novel, travels across time and space, Stories We Tell Ourselves brings to light narratives shaped by literature, history, and current events, highlighting the role that storytelling plays within our sense of place.

AAM exhibitions are made possible by the Marx Exhibition Fund.

Stories We Tell Ourselves is supported by Nancy and Bob Magoon, the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation for Latin American Art, the Simone and Kerry Vickar Roof Deck Sculpture Fund, and funded in part by the AAM National Council.
