Outlooks: Josephine Halvorson

May 14 – November 27, 2016


Outlooks: Josephine Halvorson presents Measures, three new site-specific works that respond to distinct environments in Storm King’s five-hundred-acre landscape, and are inspired by the natural and artistic landmarks that surround them. Halvorson’s large-scale painted wood rulers—or “measures,” as the artist has titled them—are equal parts art object and perceptual tool. While they reference familiar methods of measuring time and space, their units are painted by hand, emphasizing the human scale inherent in the artworks.
