Art Depicts the Human Experience in an All-New Exhibit: Solitude in the City

Solitude in the City presents a selection of twenty prints from Texas Christian University’s Permanent Art Collection that explore the shared human experience of feeling alone or isolated within the crowded urban landscape. The commonality of this experience is evident in the cross-cultural nature of this exhibition covering the span of the twentieth century, which includes American Photorealist works.

Artists featured in Solitude in the City include John Baeder, Charles Bell, Arne Besser, Thomas Blackwell, Carman Bonanno, Hilo Chen, Paul Geissler, Anthony Gross, Okie Hashimoto, Isamu Hayakawa, Elizabeth Keith, Ron Kleemann, Beatrice S. Levy, Noel Mahaffey, Tokuriki Tomikichiro and C.J. Yao.

While solitude can be isolating or transforming to those who experience it, it is often associated with a negative experience. However, solitude can promote both rejuvenation and isolation. The works featured in this exhibition suggest an attempt by artists to come to terms with ideas of interconnectedness and detachment as a consequence of modernity in the twentieth century.

A guided tour of the exhibition will be led by the curators on Thursday, January 24that 5:30pm. The tour will include an overview of the works and showcase of materials and processes related to works on paper. We hope to see you there!
