      Fleming Museum Tour: Small Worlds - Miniatures in Contemporary Art with Stephanie Glock

      Contemporary Art." Small Worlds will explore the ways contemporary artists use miniatures, such as dioramas, hobby train figures, and architectural models to inspire awe, whimsy, and even dread. The selected artists either create or employ found miniature figures, rooms, and landscapes, displaying them through photographs or as the sculptures themselves. The works will be divided into two categories, "magical" and "menacing." This dichotomy demonstrates that miniature forms reminiscent of our childhood playthings can be used to either recall in us that sense of wonder toward the world around us or call our attention to the dark forces hidden beneath the seduction of the small. As our inherent attraction to the miniature draws us into the imagined world of the artist, real-world traumas including violence, displacement, and environmental disaster are brought to our attention in intricate and intimate ways.
