Nan Hill: Sideshow

In the United States, there is a long tradition of sideshows going back to the 1800s, often being the feature of traveling carnivals and roadshow circuses. In this exhibition, Hill’s charming and surreal paintings work as a meditation on what it is to be “different” and not to fit the conventional norms. She explores the shameful thrill of the sideshow, its place in our cultural landscape, and the boundaries of what it means to be normal.
