Off the walls

Art does not always have to be on a wall or behind glass to enjoy. So says Hailey resident Jeanne Meyers, who will curate The Sun Valley Center for the Arts’ contemporary art exhibit Subversive Moves. Meyers’ mission is to bring art “off the walls” and she does so through a show that features unconventional sculpture and large pieces, some of which expose the more playful side of art. The work also expresses how contemporary art has defined itself from modern art through its recognition of the viewer. Much of the work in the show is only completed when the viewer interacts with it. In Paul Kos’ Tunnel he uses a real round of Jarlsberg cheese and a real toy train to demonstrate that art has humor, and is not always about making a political statement. “People think they have to be serious about art in order to appreciate it,” said Meyers. “Art should expand your view of life.”

Subversive Moves will open at The Center on 4th and Washington Streets in Ketchum on January 12 and run through March.
