Four Seasons at Hillwood: Climbing Back Inside the Museum—or Fleeing!

November 2, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

In this heavily illustrated talk, artist and filmmaker Philip Haas will give an account of how he embarked on his Four Seasons project (on exhibit at Hillwood from October 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017), how the works were made, and how they arrived and were installed.

The Four Seasons exhibit consists of a group of large-scale sculptures, inspired by Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s renaissance paintings of the four seasons. The colossal size of Haas’s sculpture accentuates the visual puzzle of natural forms—flowers, ivy, moss, fungi, vegetables, fruit, trees, bark, branches, twigs, leaves—as they are recycled to form four human portraits, each representing an individual season.

$20 Adult, $10 Member, $7 Student
