Figuring Color, the museum’s newest exhibit, explores the connection between color and body in approximately 65 works from four artists. The exhibit begins with a consideration of surface, with Kathy Butterly’s brilliantly glazed sculptures employing flesh-tone peaches, pinks, and browns to explore the concept of surface as skin. After seeing Blood by Felix Gonzalez-Torres, a large-scale sculpture that resembles a crimson beaded curtain, visitors encounter the paintings of Sue Williams, which play with line, shape, and color to investigate the idea of insides. In a room dedicated to memory rests Gonzalez-Torres’s sculpture Untitled Loverboys, a portrait of his deceased partner and himself comprised of 355 pounds of unwrapped candy—the combined weight of the two men. Guests may take a piece of the candy with them, metaphorically taking a piece of the memory itself, before entering a final room that explores joy in an explosion of color and exuberant lines contributed by all four artists.<p>
