WONDER at Renwick Gallery, Washington, DC, Features Immersive Contemporary Art Environments
One view of WONDER, Renwick Gallery, Washington, DC
Last fall, the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery, the first building in the United States designed expressly as an art museum, opened its doors after a major two-year renovation. To celebrate, Nicholas R. Bell, The Fleur, and Charles Bresler Senior Curator of American Craft and Decorative Art, selected nine artists to transform the entire museum into an immersive art experience.
In the exhibition WONDER, Jennifer Angus, Chakaia Booker, Gabriel Dawe, Tara Donovan, Patrick Dougherty, Janet Echelman, John Grade, Maya Lin, and Leo Villareal take over different galleries in the building with site-specific installations inspired by the Renwick.
Projects created for the second floor galleries are on view through May 8, 2016. First-floor gallery installations will remain until July 10, 2016.
