A Working Model of the World - exhibition
Wednesday, December 13, 2017 at 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 2 West 13th Street New York, NY 10011
A Working Model of the World explores the human impulse to model. It asks how we use models to contemplate, experiment, invent and teach. The exhibition emphasizes ‘model’ as a verb, showing that modelling is an activity that unifies all human beings – from children rolling dough to ecologists predicting rising sea-levels.
The artists in the exhibition, from Australia, New Zealand and the United States, examine the practical and symbolic work that models perform and the small worlds that models create, inviting a conversation between different forms of material thinking. Featured artists are Brook Andrew, Corinne May Botz, Ian Burns, Maria Fernanda Cardoso, Kate Dunn, David Eastwood, caraballo-farman, Emily Floyd, Andrea Fraser and Jeff Preiss, Glen Hayward, Jo Law, Palle Nielsen, Kenzee Patterson, Sascha Pohflepp & Chris Woebken, Karolina Sobecka, and jackie sumell.
Curated by Dr. Lizzie Muller (UNSW Art & Design) and Holly Williams (The Curators’ Department).
