Event description

PLAySPACE Gallery is open by appointment only through March 29. Please contact to arrange a visit.

Playing with Scale explores how artists grapple with questions of scale when creating works across a variety of media and how choices related to size influence the work’s impact in relation to a viewer’s expectations. By examining how both artists and gallery visitors form judgements based on a quality so determined as size, Playing with Scale invites a broadening of one’s expectations for what an artist can accomplish through the careful use of materials, forms, and styles, and the impact of closely examining those gestures, especially in an age when we increasingly encounter artworks in the accelerated space of screens, rather than in person.

Featuring work by Enda Carty, Yan Wen Chang, Haley Gewandter, Katie Hector, Hannah Lee, Katie Levinson, Courtney Odell (CCA MFA ‘20), Ahram Park, Emmaline Payette, John Robert Roy (CCA MFA ‘20), Ebtihal Shedid (CCA MFA ‘21), Gerald Wiggins.
