Cut Up/Cut Out

2017-2020 National Tour

Cut Up/Cut Out features approximately 100, 2-D and 3-D works by a dynamic roster of national and international artists who explore the practice of “cutting” in various ways – from cut paper to plastic to metal.

The art of cutting paper dates back thousands of years, with early artworks coming from 6th Century China. The artists of Cut Up/Cut Out explore the many methods of decorative piercing and cutting, but extend their media to include paper, cloth, metal, wood, rubber and much more. The transformative nature of cutting into and through a surface provides endless possibilities for converting the material from opaque to transparent, from flat to sculptural, from rigid to delicate, and from ordinary to exquisite. The artist might retain the plane of the surface and incise it to create lace-like imagery, or use thousands of intricately cut pieces to build a sculptural object or atmosphere. The process and precision required for this method of art-making is laborious, technically demanding, and always astonishing.

My Hero! Contemporary Art & Superhero Action 

2016-2019 National Tour

alcantra

My Hero presents a sprawling collection of 50-75 international artworks that explore iconic superhero imagery, along with reimagined interpretations of our classic heroes. The artists in the exhibition both pay homage to these universal idols, and also present critical questions about their popularity and God-like stature. Some artists in the exhibition also spin the fantasy further by imagining the hero as a child, as an aging being, and even as an animal. The variety of interpretations in My Hero is vast and challenging, dark and humorous, familiar yet new. The exhibition will be a likely hit with visitors, press and potential sponsors.

The scalable 3,000 square foot exhibition will include a wide array of media, including painting, illustration, photography, sculpture, mixed media and video. Exhibition artists include Mike Alcantara, Katherine Bradford, Robert Xavier Burden, Enrique Chagoya, Sandra Chevrier, Andreas Englund, Jeremy Fisher, Graham Kirk, Benoit Laprey, Simon Monk, Mark Newport, Mel Ramos, Lizabeth Eva Rossof, Steve Seeley, Inez Storer, Mark Todd, Adrian Tranquilli, Jason Yarmosky, and many others. The exhibition also includes an exhibition guide and audio guide.

Inflatable structures connote fun and whimsy, and challenge our everyday, feet-on-the-ground perspective. BLOW UP explores the imaginative ways that artists use air as a tool for creating large-scale sculpture and includes imagery that is figurative, conceptual, and abstract. Accessible, yet rich with meaning, these pieces use perception of space and unexpected materials to open a dialogue about pop culture and social norms. 

BLOW UP was funded with a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

artists include:

Claire Ashley  •  Lee Boroson  •  Lewis DeSoto  •  Patrick Flibotte  •  Billie G. Lynn •

Guy Overfelt  •  Momoyo Torimitsu  •  Andy Warhol
