Senior Lecturer Stephen Lapthisophon Variations on Theme: Contemporary Art 1950s–Present

Senior Lecturer Stephen Lapthisophon currently has two pieces of work at the DMA. This installation drawn primarily from the Museum’s collection brings together works in all media from disparate periods to explore themes and ideas that drive an artist’s creative process. Sections will be devoted to thematic associations including abstraction, minimalism, and the figure. Historical and literal associations such as the use of text, the construction of typologies, and the tradition of Vanitas will structure other groupings. Works from the collection that have never before been seen will be installed alongside a number of recent acquisitions to focus a new lens on ways of discovering the collection.
