Making the Wheel
Visual & Critical Studies Open Studios 2018
133/141 West 21 st St., 4th Floor
April 26, 2018
The artist studio is a sight of calculation and chance. It is a space that invites investigations that eventually manifest as methodology. ‘Making the Wheel’ is an ode to inventing. Artists offer viewers a look into how one thing led to another and the vitality of their practice. Experiments of material tension, violence, healing, spacial optics and force are revealed in this exposé of process.
Many of the artists featured are interdisciplinary, as is the nature of Visual and Critical Studies. Using sculpture, video installation, printmaking, and painting, ‘Making the Wheel’ considers the series of efforts and personal victories that construct works of art.
