About the event

How do “traditional” art-making processes of observation and proportion continue to play a role in contemporary art after modernism? Particularly in work related to geometries of enclosure and spatial relationships of objectson the intimate human scale of the hand to the page and the macro scale of the structures of cities, these questions become entangled with social and political resonances. Continuing the James Gallery’s investigations in contemporary perspectives on modernism, artists Shoshana Dentz, Caitlin Masley, and Seher Shah whose work is on view in the current exhibition Observed Ratios will be in conversation with James Gallery curator Katherine Carl.
