Hofstra University Museum of Art presents ‘Uncharted’ exhibition


Eight acclaimed artists present works that investigate mathematic and scientific principals in the Hofstra University Museum of Art exhibition “Uncharted: American Abstraction in the Information Age.”

Presented at the Emily Lowe Gallery, from Jan. 28 – June 19, 2020, this show features art that collides with the worlds of science, math, and technology. James O. Clark, John Goodyear, Lynne Harlow, Daniel G. Hill, Gilbert Hsiao, Irene Rousseau, James Seawright, and Patricia Zarate offer examples of two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and site-specific designs, but many of their works on display defy traditional classification.

Museum Director and Chief Curator Karen T. Albert said, “these abstract artists have no common intention or focus, but by exploring new ideas, materials, and technologies in their artistic practice, they share a desire to head deeper into uncharted territory.”

The Emily Lowe Gallery is located behind Emily Lowe Hall on Hofstra’s South Campus. The public is invited to two free receptions: A preview and artist reception on Sunday, Jan. 26, from 2 – 5 p.m., and an exhibition reception on Thursday, Jan. 30, from 4:30 – 6 p.m.

Additional specialized programming planned in conjunction with the exhibition includes:

Uncharted Roundtable: Shock of the New

Tuesday, March 24, 4:30 – 6 p.m.
