Set in Motion Camille Utterback and Art That Moves

September 14-December 08, 2019
On view: Second floor

This exhibition pairs an interactive installation by new-media artist Camille Utterback with a century of art depicting motion from the Carter’s collection. In Utterback’s Untitled 5 (2004), visitors’ movements in the gallery space are run through computer software written by the artist that translates them into an animated digital painting that constantly evolves. Although thoroughly contemporary, Untitled 5 builds on a rich lineage of artwork that records or transforms human movement, including the abstract expressionists Utterback considers her creative forbears. Set in Motion includes a selection of work by women who experimented to pursue this difficult goal, from well-known masters like Georgia O’Keeffe and Helen Frankenthaler to underappreciated artists like Barbara Morgan and Anne Ryan.

Support for Set in Motion: Camille Utterback and Art That Moves is generously provided by The Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation and The Donny Wiley Memorial Fund at the North Texas Community Foundation.
