The idea of travel always captures the imagination with its alluring offer of an escape from the routine and a promise of change. It encompasses both the anticipation of the journey, the "“dream," and the confrontation of the reality we find, from expectation to revelation.
Travelers: Objects of Dream and Revelation —BAM’s newest exhibition— brings together nine contemporary artists who explore the ambiguous motif of travel and the objects associated with it. Featured artists also include Janice Arnold, Margarita Cabrera, Marc Dombrosky, Erika Harrsch, Timothy Horn, Cal Lane and Robb Putnam.
“While each of the works in the exhibition is loosely associated with travel, they also becom a point of departure for a larger investigation,” says Director of Curatorial Affairs/Artistic Director and curator of the exhibition, Stefano Catalani.
Organized by Bellevue Arts Museum and curated by Stefano Catalani. Made possible by The Benaroya Company, Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, ArtsFund and the City of Belleuve Arts Program.
