Artspace Project Wall

In the distance of time (draws, and is charmed from moving), to be featured this summer on the Artspace Project Wall, an inky night sky and an ocean’s white-capped swell are illuminated by the blazing descent of an otherworldly comet. As this interstellar traveler meets the Earth’s atmosphere, it threatens to collapse the space between geological and cosmological time into a singular extinguishing moment while reminding us of nature’s awe-inspiring power.

Michael Krueger’s artwork has been exhibited internationally and is found in numerous public and private collections, including the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; Denver Museum of Art, Denver, CO; Fogg Museum, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA; Estonian National Museum of Art, Tallinn, Estonia; Library of Congress, Washington, DC; Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, MO; New York Public Library, New York, NY; RISD Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI; Frans Masereel Centre, Kasterlee, Belgium; Weisman Museum of American Art, Minneapolis, MN; and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY.
