Event date

Join us for a reception on August 31 for Jared Buckhiester's What's Gone With That Boy I Wonder. The exhibition will be on view in Clough-Hanson Gallery September 1 - October 7. 

Spanning the last decade, What’s Gone With That Boy I Wonder surveys Jared Buckhiester’s exploration of conflicted desires and the American archetypes that anchor them. This exhibition presents a selection of works inclusive of the artist’s varied and emotionally-invested approach to the medium drawing. Initially an exhibition titled Love Me Tender curated by David Getsy and presented at The Bureau Of General Services Queer Division in the fall of 2017, What’s Gone With That Boy I Wonder expands on its previous incarnation. In the current iteration of this exhibition, photography and sculpture are included alongside drawings, giving a fuller impression of Buckhiester’s working process, while broadening its narrative and conceptual possibilities.
