What better way to kick off your Super Bowl celebration than exploring the world of sports as seen by contemporary artists?
Visit the Hard Targets and Cyprien Gaillard exhibitions for free and take in a range of fun and engaging activities that bring together art and athletics. As part of the festivities, visitors can also see Go Tigers!, a documentary about high school football in Massillon, Ohio, that ESPN called one of the five best sports documentaries of all time. You can also see a dance performance created by Ohio State dance student Dante Brown in response to Hard Targets.
Read more about the event at the Wexner Center for the Arts website.
Hard Targets is a revised presentation of Mixed Signals: Artists Consider Masculinity in Sports, a traveling exhibition organized and circulated by ICI (Independent Curators International), New York, that was itself an expanded version of Contemporary Projects 11: Hard Targets—Masculinity and Sports, an exhibition organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
