Work by Michael Banning

Michael Banning ’04, MFA, currently has an exhibition titled Hopper/Hammershøi on display at the Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center in Nyack, New York.

This exhibit is the culmination of Banning’s research, artmaking, and collaboration with American Art scholar, Kirsten M. Jensen, Ph.D. In the summer of 2018, Banning traveled to the Edward Hopper House and one of Danish artist Vilhelm Hammershøi’s homes in Copenhagen, where he was able to take photos, make sketches and paint while visiting each. The work for this exhibition, in the form of shaped relief paintings and models, was specifically made for this installation, which combines the aesthetics and sensibilities of Hopper and Hammershøi.

On view through December 1, 2019
Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center (Nyack, NY)
