Join us for a guided tour of Solitude in the City, lead by exhibition curators Emily Dorward, Jennifer Earthman, Elizabeth Theban, and Jennifer Yuhas. The tour will include an overview of the works, and showcase of materials and processes related to works on paper.

 


Solitude in the City presents a selection of twenty prints from TCU’s Permanent Art Collection that explore the shared human experience of feeling alone or isolated within the crowded urban landscape. The commonality of this experience is evident in the cross-cultural nature of this exhibition covering the span of the twentieth century, which includes American Photorealist works, Japanese woodblock prints, and architectural etchings from Italy and France.

Artists featured in Solitude in the City include John Baeder, Charles Bell, Arne Besser, Thomas Blackwell, Carman Bonanno, Hilo Chen, Paul Geissler, Anthony Gross, Okie Hashimoto, Isamu Hayakawa, Elizabeth Keith, Ron Kleemann, Beatrice S. Levy, Noel Mahaffey, Tokuriki Tomikichiro and C.J. Yao.

While solitude can be isolating or transforming to those who experience it, it is often associated with a negative experience. However, solitude can promote both rejuvenation and isolation. The works featured in this exhibition suggest an attempt by artists to come to terms with ideas of interconnectedness and detachment as a consequence of modernity in the twentieth century.
