Curator: Roger Cutler
This summer everything moves at artdc. Guest curator Roger Cutler sees the restrained playfulness in life and art. He moved away from static art and corralled a group of kinetic sculptors to develop a mobile show. Everyone has a reaction to art—now the art reacts to you.
There are no wallflowers or high horses this month. Our work is away from the wall and off of the pedestal. Mobiles confront you as you move through the gallery. It’s magnificent to walk amongst the art and experience its reaction to you in passing. The residual traces and memories of our movements are manifested through the dance of mobiles. The flights of the art are mesmerizing and delightful. Color and movement exists in tandem in every direction. The mobiles’ activation, a result of the invisible energy in the air around us, is a stellar experience to be had. Watch your head!
To celebrate, we will offer art demonstrations so you can create your own wire-based sculpture at the reception. For the closing celebration we will give away free art in celebration of mobile originator Alexander Calder’s birthday!
Join us this Saturday June 29th, 7-10 p.m. at the artdc Gallery for the opening reception of Get Off The Wall. We will offer light snacks and beverages free of charge. This event is free and open to the public. Closing celebration is July 27, 2013.
