How Do I Look? Ways of Understanding Art
How Do I Look? showcases cherished and previously unseen pieces from The Rooms' collections, as well as works gathered from celebrated artists, to explore the many ways art tells stories. How does art enhance our understanding of the world by sharing experiences and diverse viewpoints? How can we learn to explore beyond first impressions and reflect on a journey of understanding? This exhibition is designed to appeal to multiple senses, to help all people appreciate art more deeply, and encourage us to find our own stories through the art on display.
Billy Gauthier’s The Earth, Our Mother, will be added to this exhibition over Winter 2024 following conservation treatment.
