Hamilton Now: Object
As a statement on the incredible number of artists working in Hamilton (including faculty Carmela Laganse, past graduate and instructor Laura Marotta, and instructors Donna Akrey and Melissa Bennett, and many who are newly arrived), the Hamilton Now exhibition is in two parts. The second phase, called Object, focuses mainly on sculptors. This large group exhibition offers fresh experiences of various material and conceptual approaches to the medium. Works include architectural explorations of place, hybridized clay sculptures, textile works and an interactive digital video project that incorporates a sculptural map of Hamilton. Artists include Carmela Laganse, Christopher Reid Flock, Destiny Grimm, Donna Akrey, Hamilton Perambulatory Unit (HPU), Laura Marotta, Persons, Svava Thordis Juliusson, and Taien Ng Chan. Curated by Melissa Bennett.
