"Figures of Thinking" presents a case for a new way of making art in a century that, even in its early years, has already brought great change and turmoil, from 9/11 to bombings and natural disasters. These events have caused a dramatic shift in how people perceive their lives and their world. A candid and engaging conversation between curators Vicky A. Clark and Sandhini Poddar focuses on the intuitive, on art and artists that suggest and evoke responses rather than seek to analyze, testifying to a shared sensibility that belies the complexities of today's diverse and changing world. Featured artists include Rina Banerjee, Lesley Dill, Ellen Gallagher, Mona Hatoum, Adrienne Heinrich, Nina Katchadourian, Simone Leigh, Wangechi Mutu, Yuki Onodera, Kathy Prendergast, Barbara Weissberger, Heesung Yang, Cheryl Yun, and Zarina.
