experimental bedsexperimental beds is a set of six color etchings by Judy Watson, an Indigenous Australian artist who visited the University of Virginia in October 2011 as an artist-in-residence at the Kluge-Ruhe Collection.Explore the exhibit »
Inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s architectural drawings of U.Va., Watson developed her ideas in collaboration with Professor Dean Dass and advanced printmaking students in U.Va.'s print workshop. The resulting prints use Jefferson’s drawings layered with images from Watson's visit to Monticello and her experience at U.Va.
The exhibition is on view in the South Gallery of the Mary and David Harrison Institute for American History, Literature, and Culture through May 11, 2013. For more information on experimental beds, click the link below and scroll down.
