Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art presents Water Music
July 24 - November 17
This exhibition of works from the Permanent Collection of Kemper Museum is inspired by the poem “Water Music” by American poet and feminist literary critic Sandra M. Gilbert.
The poem describes qualities of water—clear, shapeless, changing—and its connection to our bodies. Just as the words of Gilbert’s poem elicit water’s connection to people, the paintings on view expand on water’s presence in the landscape.
Both poem and paintings engage perception, particularly how we may see ourselves reflected in the world around us, and how water can be a metaphor for the fluidity of life.
