James Benning and Sharon Lockhart: Over Time
Separated by a generation, American artists James Benning (b. 1942), a Milwaukee native, and Sharon Lockhart (b. 1964) often cite each other’s films as an influence on their own work. This exhibition, which will evolve in two installations over the course of a year, reveals connection points between their practices.
