Explore ideas of accessory and appendage with artist Lily Hanson, whose psychologically charged sculptural works combine soft, anthropomorphic elements with solid form.
This Gallery Lab will emphasize the act of thinking with your hands, a process of finding form through material experimentation. Stitch, glue, twist and stuff your way to small scale sculptures that suggest ornamentation or prosthesis.
The Gallery Lab series brings the spirit of experimentation to the Nasher galleries. Join us for informal conversations, interactive presentations, performances, demonstrations and unexpected viewpoints on art with artists and voices from other disciplines.
