American artist Jim Hodges is known for his singular ability to infuse emotion and narrative into the objects of our daily lives, creating poignant studies on ideas such as temporality, life, and love. This is the first comprehensive survey of Hodges' work to be organized in the United States. Featuring some 75 pieces produced from 1987 through the present, Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take brings together photography, drawing, works on paper, and objects rendered in mirror, lightbulbs, silk flowers, and glass alongside several major room-size installations.
This Set provides an introduction to Jim Hodges and the exhibition Give More Than You Take, which is currently on view at the Walker Art Center through May 11, 2014. The Set features images of Hodges' work, a sampling of artwork by his peers who employ similar materials and explore related ideas and issues within their work, and videos featuring the voices of the artist and the exhibition curators.
Tours of the exhibition are available and the Walker would love to accomodate your group. Please click here for more information about scheduling.
