DESCRIPTION

Procedural

Curated by Jackie Im and Aaron Harbour

MacArthur B Arthur is pleased to announce Procedural, a group show featuring work by MiguelCalderón, Chris Cobb, Anthony Discenza, Maggie Haas, Kelly Lynn Jones, Mads Lynnerup, Julio César Morales, Marco Rios, Trevor Shimzu, Chris Sollars, Charlene Tan, Kara Tanaka, and Christine Wong Yap.

Procedural is an exhibition of instruction-based works. Thirteen artists were invited to create new pieces in the form of instructions to be performed and fabricated by the curators, Jackie Im and Aaron Harbour. The resulting works are both products of the artists’ hand and their conceptualizing process, as well as representing the series of decisions made during production, in this case by Im and Harbour. The visible hand of the curators in each work directly implicates the curator as not just a supervisor but also as a collaborator. Procedural reflects on and questions the importance of the individual artists’ hand versus concept and explores artwork as a collaboration between artists, curators, fabricators, and audience.
