Amelie Chabannes: Double Portraits and a Fourth Hand
MArch 24 - August 25, 2013
The drawings of Amelie Chabannes explore extreme dependency between individuals, and how these relationships blur and destroy personal identity. Working with well-known couples from the art world—including artists Marina Abramović and Ulay, and Gilbert & George—Chabannes fuses their individual images, and hence their relationships, through an obsessive, overlapping drawing technique that emphasizes both psychological and artistic obsession. For her first solo museum exhibition, Chabannes will complete two large, site-specific drawings that will involve cutting into the Museum's walls. This exhibition is curated by Aldrich exhibitions director Richard Klein.
March 24 to August 25, 2013
A series of exhibitions and related programming presenting an array of approaches taken by contemporary artists who push the boundaries of drawing, the most direct and universal means of visual expression. The exhibitions will focus on those whose practice has taken the pursuit of drawing to extremes, addressing issues of scale, material, content, gesture, emotion, and individual circumstance.
