SOMEWHERE BETWEEN CREATION AND DESTRUCTION
The Seventh International Distinguished Artists Symposium and Exhibition

Joseloff Gallery
September 9-October 26, 2014

Opening Reception: 
Thursday, September 18, 2014, 5-7 p.m.

Somewhere Between Creation and Destruction, the seventh International Distinguished Artists Symposium and Exhibition at the Joseloff Gallery, Hartford Art School is a celebration of the renaissance of cut paper as an artistic expression.  Paper, a ubiquitous medium, is transformed by the simple acts of cutting, removing, folding, and reassembling to create something far beyond its humble beginnings. 

The International Distinguished Artists Symposium and Exhibition (IDASE), established at the Hartford Art School in 1994, is a grand showcase for the work of internationally known artists featuring challenging themes and a week of lectures and discussions leading up to the gala opening reception.  This exhibition, curated by Joseloff Gallery managing director, Lisa Gaumond, will explore works featuring paper as the central medium used to express each artist's message and emotion.  Paper may be sliced by hand, torn, or laser cut; pieces may be traditional, flat, and decorative; they may be layered, reconstructed, and sculptural.

Emerging artists will be shown alongside veterans of the craft.  Wall pieces, freestanding sculptures, and site-specific installations will share space with hand-cut books and freestanding sculptures; all borrowed from private collections and galleries from across the globe.

List of Artists:
Tauba Auerbach | Su Blackwell | Jaq Belcher | Doug Beube | Sang-ah Choi | Béatrice Coron | Andrea Dezsö | Lesley Dill | Olafur Eliasson | Adam Fowler | Mark Fox | Christopher Gilmour | Red Grooms | Valerie Hammond | Julene Harrison | Andrew Hayes | Carole P. Kunstadt | Guy Laramée | Simone Lourenço | Max Marek | Elsa Mora | Nicole Morello | Claes Oldenburg | Mia Pearlman | Dieter Roth | Rob Ryan | Andy Singleton | Aki Sogabe | Jen Stark | Andrew Sutherland | Richard Sweeney | Sarah Sze | Randal Thurston | Lane Twitchell | Kako Ueda | Crystal Wagner | Letha Wilson

The exhibition will begin on Tuesday, September 9, 2014, and run through Sunday, October 26, 2014.  A three-day symposium will take place September 16-18, 2014 with events scheduled each day, leading up the gala opening reception on Thursday, September 18, 2014 from 5-7 p.m. in the gallery.  Symposium events are listed below.
