RUTLAND, VERMONT 77 Gallery Using a simplicity of means, Whitney Ramage achieved a magnitude of results in her recent exhibition “DisEmbodiment.” In her masterful installation A Prayer for Every Day You’ve Been Gone, more than 1,800 white origami paper boats seemed to float across the polished wood floor of the gallery.
EDINBURGH Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Modern One Scottish artist Katie Paterson has described time as the “material” with which she creates her work. In this modest but significant survey—her first major exhibition in a public institution in Scotland—her playful, rigorously researched works tick with the passing of millennia as stars die, solar eclipses pass, and planets spin.

SOMERSET, U.K. Hauser & Wirth In “A Wonderful Anarchy,” Bharti Kher presented new works produced during a three-month residency with Hauser & Wirth Somerset in 2017.

Millicent Young uses poor materials—horsehair, in particular—to create lyrical abstractions that resemble ancient artifacts or inspired attempts at joining the timeless elements of nature to a contemporary point of view. Educated at Wesleyan University and the University of Virginia, with an MFA from James Madison University, she has always followed her own path.
French conceptual artist Laurent Grasso recaptures something of the exciting uncertainty that characterizes scientific theories at the nexus of knowledge and belief.
