Join The Carriage Barn Arts Center for a visit to The Brant Foundation’s current exhibit by Jason Rhoades (1965-2006). Featuring iconic installations and rarely seen sculptures, the exhibition offers an insightful look at Rhoades’s powerful and persuasive oeuvre.
Until his untimely death at age 41, Rhoades carried out a continuous assault on aesthetic conventions and the rules governing the art world, wryly subverting those conditions by activating them within his practice. He conceived his works as part of an ongoing project in which the installations were continuously altered and supplemented. Underpinned by a unique combination of humor and conceptual rigor, his practice redefined and expanded the space in which artworks are both made and exhibited. With a firm belief in the ultimate freedom of expression for artists, Rhoades circumvented notions of taste and political correctness in a candid pursuit of the creative impulse itself.
The Brant Foundation Art Study Center is located in Greenwich, Connecticut, and is open to the public Monday – Friday by appointment. The Brant Foundation has a mission to promote education and appreciation of contemporary art and design, by making works available to institutions and individuals for scholarly study and examination.
