Amon Carter Museum of American Art presents "Set in Motion: Camille Utterback and Art That Moves"
"Set in Motion: Camille Utterback and Art That Moves" pairs an interactive installation by new-media artist, Camille Utterback, with a century of art depicting motion from the Carter’s collection. In Utterback’s "Untitled 5" (2004), visitors’ movements in the gallery space are run through computer software written by the artist that translates them into an animated digital painting that constantly evolves. Although thoroughly contemporary, "Untitled 5" builds on a rich lineage of artwork that records or transforms human movement, including the abstract expressionists Utterback considers her forbearers.
"Set in Motion" includes a selection of work by women who experimented to pursue this difficult goal, from well-known masters like Georgia O’Keeffe and Helen Frankenthaler to underappreciated artists like Barbara Morgan and Anne Ryan.
