This event has ended.

A solo exhibition featuring Alan Shields’ interactive installation, "Maze (1981-82)," organized in cooperation with the Estate of Alan Shields. Creating a fully immersive viewing experience, Shields has combined many of his preferred materials, techniques and forms into his largest work. In a documentary film from 1986, he discusses the conception and construction of the piece: “If you walk around inside of it, you’ll see that there are a lot of different canvases, again, you’ll see that I use partially my theater background, and partially the painting aspect, but it’s like a stage set. When you get inside of it, you’ve got a ceiling overhead, you’ve got walls, corridors, intersections, changes of direction, all directed by a type of architecture within architecture.”
