BLOW UP II: Inflatable Contemporary Art explored the medium of inflatable art with figurative, conceptual, and abstract imagery. These large-scale inflatable sculptures, conceived by nine artists and art collectives, connote fun and whimsy, are familiar yet strange, and challenge the definition of art. Here, in an unusual feat, artists use air as an active tool in their work to subvert our perspective and surprise us.

Holding our attention with wonderment and delight, BLOW UP II created a spectacular, immersive environment that inspires deeper contemplation. By harnessing the power of air, the ideas and possibilities in art-making seem endless, and creativity takes flight.

Sensory Note: This exhibition included multiple kinetic sculptures composed of high-powered fans that inflate fabric sculptures, causing them to move. The fans produced sound.
