HANDOFF Completion Celebration

SUNDAY, 3/24 | 4-6 PM | FREE

Join us along with the artists from HANDOFF: Weaving in Space as we celebrate the completion of this dynamic collaborative exercise. The completed installation will remain on view through Sunday, April 14.

Refreshments will be provided.

HANDOFF: WEAVING IN SPACE

Conceived by Christine Sciulli and Bastienne Schmidt

This site-specific project, conceived by Christine Sciulli and Bastienne Schmidt, takes on the tradition of the Exquisite Corpse as a collaborative action drawing-in-space, constructed and manufactured in-situ with ropes, threads and textiles. Referencing the drawing-in-space tradition of Eva Hesse, Sheila Hicks, and Fred Sandback, invited artists will engage their own practice in a ricocheting handoff to create a three-dimensional drawing – weaving and subsuming their contributions during the seven weeks of the exhibition to generate a large-scale spatial installation completed by the show’s closing. This piece invites discussion of conventional notions of authorship to explore the contemporary necessity of collective making.

“Handoff” artists include Louise Eastman, Sabra Moon Elliot, Saskia Friedrich, LoVid, Toni Ross, Bastienne Schmidt, Christine Sciulli, Morgana Tetherow-Keller, Virva Hinnemo and Almond Zigmund.
