Art in Action: Inflate, Draw, Pour
Oct 21, 2014 - Jan 04, 2015
The act of making art is the focus of this exhibition which spotlights the work of three noteworthy artists whose process is just as intriguing as the results. Catch Jason Hackenwerth in action before October 10 as he inflates thousands of brightly colored latex balloons to create organic sculptural forms measuring over 30 feet tall. Stretching and twisting her body while drawing, Heather Hansen captures her motions on oversize canvases, while Holton Rower pours up to 50 gallons of paint onto a single piece of plywood, one cup at a time, as hundreds of colors expand into kaleidoscopic shapes. Video documentation showing each artist at work is included. This exhibition is presented in honor of Prospect 3, the international contemporary art biennial taking place in New Orleans this fall.
