More Love: Art, Politics & Sharing Since the 1990s 

When: Feb. 1-March 31 2013

Garish red boxes of chocolates can go to hell. Love is complex, polyvalent and essential—and certainly doesn't fit on a chalky conversation heart. The Ackland opens More Love: Art, Politics, and Sharing Since the 1990s, one of the biggest and most challenging shows of the year. Comprising dozens of works in the full gamut of media by 33 emerging and established contemporary artists, More Love takes its conceptual inspiration from the work of Felix Gonzalez-Torres, who made a career of breaking the emotional and intellectual boundaries between the viewer and the artwork. Many of the pieces in this show, which has been organized by consulting curator Claire Schneider, read as gifts, albeit politically pointed, personally charged or socially critical ones. Artists include Louise Bourgeois, Janine Antoni, Yoko Ono, Harrell Fletcher & Miranda July, Dario Robleto, Mona Hatoum and Greensboro's Elsewhere Collaborative. In all sincerity, this exhibition might well make you cry, as well as glow. Don't dally, though, as More Love is here for only two months, and is so loaded that you'll want to go twice. Admission is free; visit ackland.org. —Chris Vitiello
