Joan Tanner: NoTiNoRdeR
Jan 19, 2018 – Jun 17, 2018
Drawing has always been central to Joan Tanner’s artistic production, which also includes painting, sculpture, and installation work.
This exhibition presents Tanner’s works on paper spanning three decades — from 1983 to 2013 — and demonstrates the characteristic tensions in her work, between ephemeral markings and grounded elements, complexity and nuance, nature and human systems.
