Matt Nichols: SomethingDivine
Installation view of "Matt Nichols: SomethingDivine"
Exhibited in the museum’s public restrooms, “SomethingDivine” addresses the subversion of the institution’s gallery space through the presentation of hand-carved white soap and embroidered hand towels made by the artist. The duality of the work’s high/low nature raises questions concerning traditional art value, faith, and ritual as they relate to utilitarian and metaphoric uses.
