Figuring the Landscape was a painting exhibition. Over the past few decades, cutting-edge art trends have been mostly associated with multimedia installations along with critical breakthroughs connected with video, the Web, and performance art. But the talent, technical skills and inventiveness displayed among the artists exhibited in Figuring the Landscape suggested a change in tide that now, in 2009, has proven true. UConn’s CAG was one of the earliest institutions to showcase paintings by Neo Rauch and Hernan Bas.
