Lily Cox-Richard: She-Wolf + Lower Figs. Exhibition Opening

July 27

Sculptor Lily Cox-Richard presents new work that responds to the history and materiality of the Blanton’s William J. Battle Collection of Plaster Casts, a set of nineteenth-century replicas of ancient Greek and Roman sculptures and one of the few remaining collections of this kind in the United States. Such casts were once an integral part of artistic training throughout the Western world and were believed to embody aesthetic and cultural standards of taste, beauty, democracy, and learnedness. Cox-Richard’s sculptural installation invites us to consider the legacy of these objects, raising questions about their role in perpetuating notions of physical “perfection” and “whiteness” as ideal.

 

Cox-Richard’s work will remain on display through December 29, 2019.
