Seamless: Craft-based Objects & Performance Practices
January 21 – April 16, 2020
Today, artists have made performance seamless with their objects, and the accompanying video or live performance enhances the gallery experience, adding to the understanding of the work of the artist. Seamless: Craft-based Objects and Performance Practices presents the work of 3 contemporary artists working with craft objects, videos and performance.
Angela Ellsworth, Caleb Weintraub, and Stephanie J. Williams live and work in different parts of the country, Arizona, Indiana, and Maryland respectively, and bring their unique blend of geographical milieu, identity, and professional training to bear on their artworks. They have generously contributed their time and energy to ensure the project’s success and we deeply appreciate their efforts.
Seamless has been guest curated by Cheryl Harper who, in Spring 2014, produced Compulsive Narratives: Stories that MUST be Told for the Stedman, presenting original drawings by fourteen award winning graphic novelists and artists working in other mediums. Cheryl brings a fantastical vision to her curatorial practice and presents stimulating work by a variety of artists. In Seamless she brings us artists who all produce work in different media that include hand-crafted objects and video, the cool technology that mediates experience.
