There is a reason why Bob Gregson’s work is fun. His exhibition Space to Maneuver harnesses humor to gently draw people into the work and provide
Space to Maneuver is at once a playful and thought-provoking exhibition that questions the relationship between the viewer and the art object. As Gregson explains, “The basic message may be that art is serious but not sacred…I also enjoy the idea that the work is never actually completed but continually reinterpreted and refreshed through those who encounter it.” His work adds a new twist to a long line of art movements that have challenged the definition of art, including Dada, Fluxus, Happenings, Conceptual art as well as Minimalism.
Bob Gregson received a BFA from Hartford Art School and an MFA from the Art Institute of Chicago.
