The Westport Arts Center presents Ward Shelley’s What Keeps Mankind Alive on view from December 1, 2017 – March 2, 2018.
What Keeps Mankind Alive features a selected group of diagrammatic paintings that tease out narratives from history and culture. The paintings will be presented within the context of The Last Library, an ongoing collaboration between Shelley and artist Douglas Paulson. The Last Library features a room-sized installation of bookcases and 3,000 books that according to Shelley, “should have been written, but haven’t.”
The works are presented courtesy of the artists and Pierogi Gallery, NYC.
The opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Friday, December 1 from 6 – 8 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
No registration is necessary.
