DESCRIPTION

Cutters, presents work by contemporary artists who employ processes of cutting, shredding, tearing and perforating to make art. Using knives, razors, pins, scissors, hole punches, lasers, shredders and even plasma cutters, the artists in this show alter surfaces and entire objects to enhance their visual and symbolic meanings. Exploring formal and contextual issues, the works in the exhibition comprise a wide range of media, incorporating painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and installation.

This exhibition will take place simultaneously at two venues-the Leubsdorf Gallery at Hunter College and the Hunterdon Museum of Art in Clinton, NJ, where Mary Birmingham is the Director of Exhibitions.
