Imagine you walk into a meeting room, sit down, and rather than getting out your laptop, iPad or notebook, you pick up a group of wood and glass spheres and start rolling them across the table to signal who is speaking, who is not, and for how long. That’s what visual artist Caroline Woolard explores in a new exhibition at The Galleries at Moore College of Art & Design, on view Saturday, August 3 through Saturday, September 21, 2019. The Meeting explores collaborative dialog amidst the inevitable antagonisms of group work.
The exhibition also features a curated archive of Woolard’s past work, including the correspondence, sketches, budgets, and technical drawings required to create collaborative, multi-year, public initiatives using both online networks and sculptural environments. Viewers will experience Woolard’s “politics of transparency” with open source web 2.0 technology as well as the administrative work required to produce immersive installations and artist-run institutions
The closing reception and artist talk, part of the College’s ongoing Conversations@Moore public program series, will be held Thursday, September 12, 5–8 pm. The Galleries at Moore are located at 1916 Race Street, located on The Parkway. The exhibition and public program are free and open to the public, and ADA accessible.
