Transparent/Opaque: An Installation by Annette Lawrence

March 18-April 16, 2000
Museum Apse

Using simple, humble materials--postal string and brown paper--installation artists Annette Lawrence will work with a team of UM art students to create a structure that will evoke the passage of time and the marking of that passage. As the artist has said, "all of my work is about time passing--about making references and connections between things." In her work the artist has dealt with issues of identity, race, and gender and has made temporal references to her own ancestry, to her own body, or to culture in general. Her installation will create physical passageways within the Museum space. The classical architecture of the apse represents a different type of installation atmosphere for Lawrence and one that will present interesting new opportunities for interaction.

Installation, African American Museum, Dallas, Texas
