Shannon Crider

The Ballad of Polynices

May 3 - May 31, 2014


Inspired by the Greek play Antigone, Shannon Crider creates her largest work to date honoring the timeless Sophocles story. Through the piece, Crider investigates heroism, family values, politics, and death in correlation to the body, matter, and stars.

In addition to premiering The Ballad of Polynices, this exhibition explores Crider’s complex sculptural collages through an installation highlighting the artist’s process.

Select works from the presentation travel to the McNay Art Museum for their series Artists Looking at Art from June 3 through August 3, 2014. Click here to view a video of Crider's artist talk held on June 12.

Shannon Crider: The Ballad of Polynices is accompanied by a publication designed and produced by French & Michigan. This is the first catalogue dedicated to Crider's artwork.
