Road Trip artist Tracey Snelling talks about her work in the Exhibition and offers insight into her creative process.
Often considered a distinctly American experience, the road trip is an excursion in which the journey is as compelling as the destination. The exhibition Road Trip examines this travel experience through photography, video, sculpture, and works on paper by Eleanor Antin, Jane Benson, Sophie Calle, Steven Deo, Lordy Rodriguez, Ed Ruscha, and others. Photographers Candace Plummer Gaudiani and Catherine Opie methodically document their surroundings, often searching for remnants of the past. Other artists such as Val Britton and Nina Katchadourian favor a metaphorical approach, reinterpreting maps to produce invented landscapes. Road Trip offers a broad exploration of real and imagined journeys, which often entail not only a physical displacement but also a psychological and emotional passage.
San Jose Museum of Arts exhibition, Road Trip, is sponsored by McManis Faulkner.
