Making as Thinking: Curator Talk

CURATOR TALK

Sunday, March 18, 2018, 2-5pm

Talk starts at 2:30pm

Curator Todd Lambrix, “As an artist and a professor of fine arts, I am often at odds that art-making begins with the thought and ends with the work. My practice flows in the opposite direction and I am often drawn to works in which the concept grows from the making. As I sorted through the member registry I was continually drawn towards pieces that had this kind of physicality to them. They had a direct decisiveness that was at the same time searching for an answer. As I chose them I could almost see the process or feel the emotion propelling the making. This making seems to function as both the process and the thinking and the resulting works have a layered, open flexibility to them. For me, the notion of making as thinking suggests we are working through a problem rather than illustrating an idea. It suggests we are not sure of exactly where we stand.”

Alaine Becker, Mona Brody, Kathy Cantwell, Nora Chavooshian, RitaMarie Cimini, Lorraine Deprospo, Alison Golder, Alyce Gottesman, Sheila Grabarsky, Beth Heit, Linda Brooks Hirshman, Michelle Kurlan, Wendy Letven, Susan Lisbin, Maria Lupo, Madalyn Marcus, Natalya Tali Margolin, Theda Sandiford, Katie Truk, Becky Yazdan.
