Join Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs Peter Nisbet for a guided look at the Ackland Art Museum’s newest exhibition Good Object / Bad Object (on view January 20 – April 2, 2023). Learn how these “misbehaving” objects flout expectations while continuing a lineage of contemporary sculpture that pushes back against traditional “object-on-a-pedestal” conventions. Artists in the exhibition include Carl Andre, Michael Ashkin, Martin Creed, Urs Fischer, Eero Hiironen, Roni Horn, Mel Kendrick, Annette Lemieux, Senga Nengudi, Amalia Pica, Sopheap Pich, Do Ho Suh, Stella Waitzkin, Tom Wesselmann, and Aaron Wilcox.
