Antigravity: Space Invaders by Shasti O’Leary Soudant

From April 1, 2023 to February 7, 2024

Location: Museum Entryway (Floor 1)

Antigravity: A Space for Contemporary Perspectives is an exciting series of site-specific art installations in the entry of The Rockwell.

Each spring, a contemporary guest artist will create an original work of art in response to The Rockwell’s collection. This new, unusual exhibition space greets each guest, provoking curiosity and reflection about art from the moment you enter the building.

Artist Shasti O’Leary Soudant will transform the Museum’s rotunda with a site-specific installation called Space Invaders. The whimsical and colorful sculpture alludes to the insidious and invasive nature of modern surveillance implemented through our online social media interactions and business transactions that take place in “The Cloud.”
