The Jewel Thief
The Jewel Thief explores ways to think about and experience abstract art. The exhibition and this accompanying publication focus attention on art’s intersection with the decorative and functional elements of architecture. Artwork is presented through the lens of several opposing yet fluid categories that exist in our everyday lives, such as private and public, intimate and spectacular, and hot and cold.
