Opening Day for "Conversation XIV: Water"

Water is timeless or is it? This installation of works from the Spencers permanent collection explores contemporary artists perspectives on the elixir of life: Hee0. Many of the works assembled for this installation take an eco-critical approach to the subject matter, exploring pollution and scarcity, whereas others address water less literally and more symbolically, as a cleansing or destructive force. From this selection of 20th- and 21st-century works, a subtle visual dialogue emerges between the Kaw River of Kansas and the Yangtze of China. This exhibition remains on view through July 28, 2013
