Andy Moon Wilson will discuss his whimsical Blue Building series of drawings.
Will Pergl–visiting from Milwaukee, WI–will discuss his large-scale installation, Trivialities of Deportment VI, which meanders throughout half of the gallery, from floor to ceiling, charmingly employing the language of construction in vivid colors.
The discussion will be followed by Audience Q&A.
Picnic with the participants with victuals provided by White Tiger & Trump’s Catering.
This event is affiliated with The Way Things Work, curated by Didi Dunphy with Assistant Curator Megan Kluttz. A colorful and spectacular exhibit it features large-scale installation, indoor and outdoor sculpture, drawings, videos and sound art by 11 national and international artists who respond to systems, utilizing a wide range of contemporary art-making methodologies in order to investigate an equally wide range of subject matter. Yet whether they explore entomology or lottery ticket predictions, Morse code or Macbeth, building construction or table tennis, architecture or the (dis)logic of democracy, they all share a common approach to generating meaning that is deeply rooted in the history of contemporary art.
Free! ($3 to $6 suggested donation, but no one turned away for lack of funds)
