We’ll start the afternoon with brunch at Island restaurant before heading to the beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building to explore this fascinating exhibit. Going Dark: The Contemporary Figure at the Edge of Visibility presents works of art that feature partially obscured or hidden figures, thus positioning them at the “edge of visibility.” In this art context, the common phrase going dark is understood as a tactic whereby artists visually conceal the body to explore a key tension in contemporary society: the desire to be seen and the desire to be hidden from sight.
