Virginia Overton is a site-reactive artist. She makes sculpture installation, video, and photography that relate to and interact with a venue’s architecture and defining landscape. A material focal point for Overton’s exhibition at The Aldrich was a 73-foot, 52-year-old Eastern white pine tree that she felled on the Museum’s grounds. Her exhibition featured thirteen site-responsive sculptures and a video within the galleries, on the surrounding campus, and on the roof. Produced on the occasion of Virginia Overton, on view at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum May 5, 2016 to February 5, 2017.
