    Known for his personal cosmologies, hypnosis performances, and invention of gnomic signs, Matt Mullican explores the multiple, and sometimes zany, connections between consciousness and language. This survey features some twenty-five works in diverse materials (including paper, glass, cloth, ceramic, and wood) and in various scales (from small drawings to room-sized installations) dating from the late ’80s to today. Visitors will have the opportunity to gain an overview of the artist’s complex approach to the idea of “models.” By making material his relationship to architecture and cities, as well as mapping networks of mental ideas, Mullican’s models open onto both the psychology of space and the spatialization of thought.
