Jason Fiering: Turned Down – Public Gallery Hours

April 14 @ 12:00 am - June 19 @ 11:59 pm

Public gallery hours for Jason Fiering: Turned Down


About this exhibition:

These precise, minimalist assemblies offer multiple interpretations of the bed, a site associated with rest, refuge, intimacy, illness, and violence alike. Fiering reflects the ambiguities of that site in the constructions themselves. The motif of a single fold, the “turn down,” bends the picture plane and emphasizes the ambiguities of front and back, image and object, and painting and sculpture. Fiering’s meticulous construction, uncompromising hard edges, and mathematical proportions invite us to consider a familiar form anew, and challenge our desires for security and certainty.

In 2021, Jason Fiering was named ArtsWorcester’s Present Tense Prize Winner. This prize recognizes an artist whose work exemplifies new practices, artistic risk-taking, and excellence in execution. Prize winners are rewarded with a solo exhibition and a $1,000 honorarium.


The Present Tense Prize is generously supported by Marlene and David Persky and the Artist Prize Fund.

ArtsWorcester exhibits in the Davis Art Gallery take place courtesy of Davis Publications.
