Dan Mills: Human Topographies
Human Topographies presents a narrow slice of the artist’s wide-ranging and decades-
long interest in history, exploration, and games and wordplay to investigate networks—
networks of power, trade, and migration that underpin societies, nationally and globally.
Mills makes luminous and layered paintings and collages about our shared human history utilizing maps and data to expose the legacies of imperialism: war, colonialism, and
the forced displacement of people.

Amy Stacey Curtis: Transfer and mirror IV
The idea of shared authorship—that visitors complete a work of art through their own understanding—is an organizing principle in Amy Stacey Curtis’ conceptual art practice. Her minimal, yet ambitious, sculptures and installations are activated through audience participation. Visitors to Transfer are invited to touch, perpetuate, and resolve each of the exhibit's five unique works according to a prescribed set of Curtis’ instructions. Supported by the Winthrop L. Carter Gift Fund.
