DESCRIPTION

One Thing Leads to Another presents contemporary prints and drawings by artists who address process and repetition in their works. The exhibition highlights works created in the ICA Print Center by several of its talented Artists-in-Residence and simultaneously celebrates the art of printmaking and the ICA’s Print Center itself. One Thing Leads To Another will highlight and contextualize four of the ICA Print Center’s Artists-in-Residence including Modesto Covarrubias, Christel Dillbohner, Linn Meyers and Theodora Varnay Jones. Additionally, works by Mari Andrews, Brad Brown, Jaq Chartier, Amy Ellingson, Lea Feinstein, Robin Kandel, Anthony Ryan and Kim Rugg will be presented.

Through repetitive and sometimes systematic processes, the exhibiting artists generate a varied visual vocabulary where one work informs the next one and so on. Drawing on various disciplines, such as music, language, mathematics and architecture, and employing minimal materials such as paper, pencil and ink, the artists present the expansive possibilities that repetition yields in developing a series of works.
