When Contemporary Art Speaks

Artists have been fascinated with words as images since ancient times, but particularly in the 20th century. When Contemporary Art Speaks takes this literal visual language (words and letter forms as subject matter) a step further. Some are witty. Some require a bit of thought. Most question the traditional notions of the viewer purely as a spectator. The exhibition is an exploration of direct communication between the artist and their audience and encompasses a multitude of mediums from vinyl wall installations and drawings to video and interactive art.

Out of Place ONE
iMOCA’s opening exhibiton

Out of Place ONEPlace is a subject that has been contemplated by artists over the centuries. A permanent place for the advancement of contemporary art has been something that has been missing from the cultural landscape of Indianapolis, until now. Out of Place One is the first exhibition at the new and first home of the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art at The Emelie Building at 340 N. Senate Avenue.

Out of Place One will include four nationally exhibited artists from different cities using different media to explore that place between who we think we should be and who we are, how we interact with and interpret what we see everyday. Those artists are Craig Doty, Theresa Gooby, Nikcy Hoberman, and Lee Walton.
