Description

Both Sides Now is a first-time creative collaboration between Lexa Walsh, a socially engaged artist, and their brother Dan Walsh, a minimalist abstract painter. They have come together to merge their practices around a shared interest in spectacle, perception, and encounters among objects and people. The result is a series of interactive sculptural stations—nodding to Rome’s Circus Maximus—which encourages new investigations and responses to WCMA’s collection. In the adjacent gallery they address their differing theories of contemporary art head-on through a series of oversized stitch samplers featuring the our ongoing, and at times contentious, call-and-response dialogue.
