Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take

Jim Hodges' superb 25-year career retrospective, Give More Than You Take, opened last month at the Dallas Museum of Art. It remains on view there until January 12, when it will travel to the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston and the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. "Made up of more than 80 works, in an array of materials including a bell jar filled with handworked glass butterflies and plants and a wall-size curtain composed of stitched-together head scarves, his first comprehensive museum survey in the United States reveals his continued awareness of the fragility of life," according to Dorothy Spears of The New York Times, who cites Hodges fearlessness and sensitivity, as both a gay man coming out in the 1980s, and as an artist. "'On the bus of art history,' he said in a recent interview, 'I wanted to sit between Richard Tuttle and Yoko Ono.' He added that 'part of the process of identity, and becoming who we are, is in choosing those lineages.' Images below are reproduced from the absolutely stunning exhibition catalogue co-published by the Dallas Museum of Art and the Walker Art Center, forthcoming in late November.
