Artist Talk with Lillian Bayley Hoover

Saturday / March 16 / 4:00pm-5:00pm

Join artist Lillian Bayley Hoover for a conversation about her solo exhibition Hitched to Everything Else, currently on view at MoCA Arlington. The talk is free and no registration is required.

In Hitched to Everything Else, Lillian Bayley Hoover depicts spaces where human infrastructure interrupts or collides with the natural environment. The artist highlights and challenges humans’ conflicted relationship to nature, or, as she explains it, all the ways “we are of nature but proceed as if we are apart from it.” Hoover’s complex landscapes invite viewers to confront this untenable approach, pointing to the threat it poses both to our own existence and to the natural world we treat as if it is distinct from human life.

Lillian Bayley Hoover: Hitched to Everything Else takes place as part of MoCA Arlington’s SOLOS 23-24, a series of solo exhibitions by artists based in the Mid-Atlantic taking place at the Museum throughout 2023 and 2024. The exhibitions were selected from an open call by a jury that included artist Nekisha Durrett, Betsy Johnson, assistant curator, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and Jova Lynne, director, Temple Contemporary, Tyler School of Art and Architecture, Temple University.
