The Davis Museum at Wellesley College has revealed its exhibits slated to open in early-February and run through late June.
The Game Worlds of Jason Rohrer (Feb. 10 – June 26) — the first museum retrospective dedicated to the work of a single video game maker. Rohrer’s work has been covered in Wired, Esquire, and The Wall Street Journal, and has also been included in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City’s initial video game acquisition. The exhibition will feature four large build-outs that translate Rohrer’s games into unique spatial experiences, alongside a section dedicated to exploring a large body of his work.
Gendered Value: Curators’ Choice exhibit (Feb. 10 – June 5) — places the permanent collections of the Davis Museum within the context of feminist art history. Works selected by eight members of the curatorial staff.
That Right Promethean Fire: Shakespeare Illustrated (Feb. 10 – June 5) — a selection of paintings, prints, photography, and books will illuminate how artists such as Angelika Kauffman, Eugène Delacroix, Max Beckmann, and Rockwell Kent have engaged with the rich corpus of Shakespeare’s work.
