In Absentia (Collection)
The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum
Regina Silveira's exhibition includes a series of absent artworks presented at the Aldrich, an institution that is itself without a permanent collection. With this exhibition, Silveira provides a series of iconic masterpieces while simultaneously paying homage to the masters she currently finds relevant. As she revisits these works in her own style, she presents us with empty pedestals, backed by the gigantic and distorted vinyl shadows of recognizable, yet absent, modern works.
