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 Chaz Bear, Haley Gewandter, Katie Hector, Hannah Lee, Katie Levinson, Courtney I. Odell, Ahram Park, Emmaline Payette, John Robert Roy, Arezu Salamzadeh, Ebtihal Shedid, Yan Wen Cheng, and Gerald Wiggins.
