Ana Vizcarra Rankin: time/scale
Curated by Tina Plokarz & Kerry Bickford
5 October – 5 November 2017
time/scale was the first solo museum exhibition of new and recent works by Uruguayan-American artist Ana Vizcarra Rankin (b. 1977, Maldonado), presented by Philadelphia Contemporary and the Brandywine River Museum of Art. In large-scale paintings and hand-crafted collages of astronomical constellations and world maps, Vizcarra Rankin investigated themes of space, time, and correlation and intertwines them with larger discussions about humanity, globalization, migration, and scientific exploration.
As curator I selected over 20 paintings and collages with the intention to provoke in the viewer an impulse to explore humanity’s interconnectivity with its surroundings and reconsider our assumptions about our place in the universe. I was also responsible for administering logistics and loans, fostering the project’s partnership with the Brandywine River Museum of Art and organizing in depth events.
