Aaron T Stephan: To Borrow, Cut, Copy, and Steal

Portland Museum of Art

Sep. 6, 2024 - Feb. 8, 2015

Seven Congress Square
Portland, Maine

Portland artist Aaron T. Stephan is known for his take-offs from, and take-downs of, characteristic or “signature” gestures by artists throughout the American modern and contemporary canon. In his first solo exhibition at the Portland Museum of Art, part of our Circa series of exhibitions featuring contemporary artists, Stephan will present a suite of sculptural installation and recent prints that showcases his witty dialogue with the formalities of the art museum by making mischief with pedestals and architecture, and with the conventions of mass reproduction.

Circa is a series of exhibitions featuring the work of living artists from Maine and beyond.Funded in part by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts. Generously supported by S. Donald Sussman. Corporate sponsorship is provided by The VIA Agency, and media sponsorship is provided by The Portland Phoenix.
