Swept Away: Dust, Ashes, and Dirt in Contemporary Art and Design

Swept Away ProjectsAn extension of the Swept Away exhibition, Swept Away Projects will include a series of “live” installations occurring during the run of the exhibition that will allow audiences to experience and interact with artists and their site-specific installations made of ash, dust, sand, and dirt. The series includes the floor installation of Catherine Bertola of the U.K., who works with dust, among several others. In some instances, visitor will actually get to sweep away the installations by walking through and touching them, participating in the ephemeral nature of these artists’ output.

Swept Away: Dust, Ashes, and Dirt in Contemporary Art and Design is made possible by the Inner Circle, a leadership Museum support group, and with public funds from the Netherlands Cultural Services.

Save the Dates! May 9th & 10th- 15th

I will be installing in the galleries on May 9th & 10th  and the galleries will remain open. Please stop by if you would like to see the work in progress. The work will only remain on view for a short period. Be sure to come by May 15th as not to miss it before being “Swept Away”

I will be producing a large scale outdoor project as well and be a part of the artist studios upstairs. Dates are yet to be determined, please stay tuned.

In addition to the projects at MAD I will represent the museum at the upcoming Sculptural Objects & Functional Art  April 20-23rd SOFA EXPO

I will be live painting at the booth April 20-23rd and have some works on display that are made with sand on panel that hang on the wall.

Here is a bit more about other works in “Swept Away”

You can also watch Curator David McFadden talk about the concept here.
