    "The Field is The World:" Williams, Hawai'i, and Material Histories

    Williams College Museum of Art

    Anicka Yi: Our Love Is Bigger Than an AIDS Quilt
    On view for the first time at WCMA, this installation by Anicka Yi immerses visitors in a sensorial experience. At its center, a large, illuminated dish contains hair gel with hundreds of cosmetic contact lenses pinned to its undulating surface, as a mentholated scent pervades the room. In her distinctive use of unconventional and often ephemeral materials, Yi's work reorders the cultural forces that privilege containment over leakage, clarity over ambiguity, and ocularity above other senses.
