COMPELLED

\n

An exhibition of Bay Area artists w orking by hand by choice

\n

Curated by Sarah Drasner

\n

In the past century\, the art worl d has expanded its horizons to a point beyond the traditional craft of draw ing\, painting\, and sculpture to embrace all media and modes of working. O ne no longer needs to spend the long hours and time-consuming measures that used to be so intrinsically tied to making an art work. Why\, then\, do ma ny artists choose to fawn laboriously over their pieces rather than make th eir point quickly through the use of new media?  What compels them to use t heir own dexterity rather than an array of available technologies?

\n

Compelled highlights the work of 18 artists who are driven to make w ork that is both tedious in it’s execution and crafted with an obvious devo tion to materials.   Less obviously\, these artists do not regard the proce ss by which the work is made to be an end in itself\, but rather a necessar y means of communication.
