Do You Follow? Artists Working in Series and Suites
APRIL 30 - OCTOBER 16, 2022 | Woodruff Gallery
Artists work in different ways. Sometimes they focus on singular objects that stand alone. At other times, they think in terms of groups of objects that relate to each other. This show foregrounds the latter aesthetic strategy. A series might imply a narrative, a storyline that connects the objects. Or a series might provide the artist the space to fully plumb innovative subjects, materials, or processes. Suites of objects might explore the same subject from different viewpoints or might gather singular objects whose similarities and differences create an inventive and compelling new whole. Drawing on recent acquisitions and longtime favorites from The Columbus Museum's holdings, this project seeks to provide insight into the creative process by investigating a particular way of working in the studio.
