Wood, Revisited

October 28, 2016 - April 8, 2017

Wood, Revisited examines the role technology has played in the work of wood artists over the past two decades. This exhibition highlights the nature of wood as a medium by investigating the boundaries of technique such as new technologies, augmented tool(s), and creating work that has a digital or technological look (“tech aesthetic”) and the dialogue between designer, engineer, and artist. Wood, Revisited, is curated by Anne Carlisle, with advisor Glenn Adamson, who was a curator of the Center’s Wood Turning in North America Since 1930 which was held 15 years ago.That exhibition was a national touring exhibition organized with the Yale University Art Gallery and was the first show to comprehensively map directions in the field of lathe-turned wood. Wood, Revisited is echoing that exhibition in manifold ways. At that time, Glenn Adamson was a Yale graduate student. Anne Carlisle, like Glenn is a graduate student and is working on her a MA at the Bard Graduate Center.
