Justin Ginsberg: Shaking the Shadow

June 11, 2022–February 12, 2023
First floor

Over the course of the summer, Texas–based artist Justin Ginsberg created a glass sculptural work inspired in part by the Sargent, Whistler, and Venetian Glass exhibition. Ginsberg worked with a glass kiln set up on the Museum’s lawn each weekend, pulling glass threads measuring up to 30 feet in length. At the end of each glassmaking session, Ginsberg installed the threads he created in the Carter’s Main Gallery, resulting in a large-scale glass “waterfall” sculpture. The public was able to watch Ginsberg at work during his weekend sessions as well as witness the multi-month realization of his site-specific installation.

Justin Ginsberg: Shaking the Shadow is organized by the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. The installation is generously supported by the Texas Commission on the Arts.
