Hilary Lloyd

Blaffer Art Museum

June 3 - September 10, 2016

"British video artist Hilary Lloyd, a 2011 Turner Prize finalist, mines visual poetry from staggered narrative fragments and abstract retinal sensations. She'll present a new body of work in her first U.S. museum exhibition."

Matthew Ronay

Blaffer Art Museum

June 3 - October 1, 2016

"Although New York-based artist Matthew Ronay has a form of color blindness, his handcrafted wood sculptures, installations and reliefs combine vivid hues from across the spectrum that seem to vibrate and hum. This is the first major U.S. presentation of his work."
