Why Can't I Touch It?

WHY CAN'T I TOUCH IT?

December 2014

CCS Bard Galleries Annandale-on-Hudson, NY

A gaze deprived of difference looks harder to discern a new spectrum of meanings. In Why can’t I touch it? gray sets the scene for relations to unfold between objects and ideas that are erratic and ambiguous by nature. Each of the selected works is riddled, conceived to be misunderstood, as if hiding something in one hand, while revealing something else in the other.

Artists included: Franz Erhard Walther, Sherrie Levine, Ellie Ga, Robert Beck, Scott Burton, Werner Pfeiffer, Ian Hamilton Finlay, John Baldessari and On Kawara.
Curated by Laura Herman, Rachael Rakes and Hannah Spears.

Part of Honey, I— six exhibitions of work from the Marieluise Hessel Collection, curated by graduate students at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (2016).
