On Paper: Spin, Crinkle, Pluck
From April 19, 2015 — September 20, 2015
This exhibition showcases eight prints and drawings whose images are the result of a specific action or intention, rather than a depiction of that action.
For example, Trisha Brown’s image of a foot spinning is not a rendering of a foot in motion, but actually her foot pirouetting directly on the etching plate.
Essentially, the artists are letting the object or action describe itself.
The artists and their actions are:
- Tauba Auerbach (crinkle)
- Trisha Brown (spin)
- Mona Hatoum (pluck)
- Emil Lukas (wrap)
- Gabriel Orozco (spit)
- Stan Shellabarger (shuffle)
- Denise Tassin (wriggle)
- Rachel Whiteread (squash)
