Se­ward John­son: The Ret­ro­spec­tive will span five decades of John­son’s ex­plo­ration into what he refers to as “The Vis­ceral Mo­ment.” He de­scribes this as the piv­otal mo­ment when view­ers en­gage with a piece of art­work and tran­scend their own place in space and time to ex­pe­ri­ence a height­ened con­nec­tion to ex­pe­ri­ence a height­ened con­nec­tion to their common hu­man­ity.
