> DESCRIPTION

Generating and visualizing ideas is an important part of any artistic process. It can be especially challenging for those artists working in the dimensional world as they contend with issues of materiality, structure, scale, space, site, labor, time, and expense. Drawings for Sculpture, curated by SAIC faculty Carolyn Ottmers, explores the various ways in which sculptors use drawing as an opportunity to play, research, and communicate their concepts before committing them to three dimensions. This exhibition is presented in conjunction with the 20th International Sculpture Conference being held in Chicago October 4–6 and features work by SAIC faculty and alumni including: Marissa Lee Benedict, Juan Angel Chávez, Yong Choi, Preston Jackson, David R. Nelson, Carolyn Ottmers, A. Laurie Palmer, Stephen Reber, Richard Rezac, and Frances Whitehead. The show will also serve as an informational hub for Plural Zone, a series of sculptural interventions and performances happening across SAIC’s campus throughout the fall semester, coordinated by SAIC visiting artist Torkwase Dyson.
