About the exhibition:
IN MEDIAS RES: How One Story Becomes Another
Main Gallery Exhibition, February 10, 2024 – May 11, 2024
In this exhibition, viewers will encounter artworks of which Bourque has engaged during his daily writing processes and in his significant body of publications. Throughout his five-decade career in writing, Borque has drawn inspiration from artists and artworks, which he explores through his poetry. The exhibition features artworks paired with Bourque’s writing. Visitors will be invited to engage and respond with varying prompts of their own, reflecting Bourque’s creative practice.
