January 17, 2015, 1:30 p.m. — Robert Gober: From the Carceral to the Sacral (and Back Again)
What would a prison look like if it were also a refuge? How would we behave in a chapel that was also a bathhouse? What does it feel like to walk through a forest filled with tree limbs and human limbs? In his immersive installation environments, the artist Robert Gober places us in just such uncanny spaces. Join us as we explore these transformative, “theatrical” works in the exhibition Robert Gober: The Heart Is Not A Metaphor.
In conjunction with the exhibition Robert Gober: The Heart Is Not a Metaphor
