3D: Demo, Display, Documentation
COMING THIS SPRING: Three aspects of contemporary professional practice will be featured in this new lecture. First, we will look at the central importance of the demonstration for building an audience and in critical reception. Then, an overview of recent strategies of display—such as Arlene
Shechet’s wonderful re-thinking of the pedestal-- will be investigated. Finally, we will discuss the key role photography plays in documenting and extending the meaning of three-dimensional work. This lecture is packed with visual examples to show a variety of tactics that artists have employed to enhance the viewer’s encounter of their work.
