The Poetics of Space

The Poetics of Space

January 31 to May 24, 2015

The Poetics of Space features both historical and contemporary works that investigate the idea of space, whether they are conceptually, analytically or emotionally founded. This exhibition takes its title from Gaston Bachelard's 1958 book of the same name that presents a psychic interpretation of "home," and one's prototypical experiences of personal space; in the book Bachelard discusses the way our perceptions of shelter begin to delineate the very essence of how we think and imagine.
