The Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University Bloomington is pleased to present the exhibition On Structure, curated by Linda Tien, Program Coordinator at the Grunwald Gallery. The exhibit will contain works by seven U.S. based contemporary artists working in a variety of media and will open on May 18 and continue through July 20, 2018.
On Structure features contemporary artists utilizing or employing structure in their practice, ideation and visual language. Works in painting, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, and digital media will be included. Artists in the exhibition are Hannah Barnes, Jessica Calderwood, Tiffany Carbonneau, Carnonneau + Crum, etc, Brian Harper, Katie Hudnall, Mie Kongo and Brooke Marks-Swanson, all hailing from the Midwest.
The works included in On Structure employ an organizational structure in either concept or production. Some works are obviously about a method of construction that relies on a system of organized execution, while others employ the idea of structure in more subtle ways. At times the structural system is hidden, or very complex, while other times it is a clear entry point for understanding the artists intent. The seven artists approach the idea of building systems differently, with a varied range of finished results.
