“Summers explores the inner terrain - that which exists beyond the physical work. The objects she makes serve as vehicles for the transference of energy in order to allow viewers access to different states of consciousness.”
-Lynn Gumpert, Exhibition brochure.
“This was the Museum’s first show using a new and unusual exhibiton format, featuring work of a highly experimental nature, which does not exist in the usual object form, but rather consists of changing, flexible, non-object-oriented environments that may involve and be modified by direct audience participation. WorkSpace functions in an intermediate realm between the artist’s studio and the exhibition gallery, in many ways bringing the private activity of the artist into public view.”
-From The New Museum Annual Report, 1981-1984
