Ridderhof Martin Gallery
September 6 – October 14
Opening Reception: September 6, 5-7pm
Artist Talk: September 7, noon

This exhibition features Abt’s Wandering Gallery project and Museum series. The Wandering Gallery project explores the behind-the-scenes, never-ending cycle of unpacking and packing, installation and de-installation, documentation, and interpretation associated with changing exhibitions.

Abt’s Museum series focuses on the visual parallels between galleries and sacred spaces, particularly religious sanctuaries. Abt is intrigued by environments created to foster contemplation, whether for the purposes of studying artworks or for spiritual introspection.
