Balistreri, John 2004, Untitled (Wall Plane #10)
Motion: Emotion looks at the scope of movement, with subject matter ranging from the subtleties of the earth’s rotation and time to human and animal activity.
The show also includes five electronic works. Peter Sarkisian’s Book, Version I, for instance, features a dictionary on which the image of a man crawls about, penciling in corrections he deems necessary.
Works in the show, such as Andy Warhol’s and Barbara Morgan’s images of modern-dance pioneer, Martha Graham; Douglas Kent Hall’s photograph of Tina Turner in action, and Jun Kaneko’s costume design for Madame Butterfly, illustrate the diversity of meanings of the term movement, from physical motion to describing part of a musical composition.

The exhibition includes a number of vehicles, each with a unique point of view. John Balistreri’s big ceramic Wall Plane #1 portrays wings patterns of bees as a means of comparing natural and engineered flight.
While Motion:Emotion contains works by such internationally acclaimed artists as Wim Delvoye of The Netherlands, a highlight is the two Indian Chief Motorcycles manufactured in the 1940s.
