Orly Genger exhibition: 'Undertone'
Friday, Jan. 24-Friday, March 21, 2014
SCAD Atlanta, fourth floor, Building C, 1600 Peachtree St.
SCAD exhibitions presents "Undertone," an exhibition of recent work by Orly Genger. Genger is renowned for her ambitious environmental sculptures of intricate, hand-knotted rope coated in paint, most recently "Red, Yellow and Blue," which debuted in New York City's Madison Square Park in 2013. The foundation of Genger's process is rooted in the traditional female crafts of crochet and knitting. However, the scale and physicality of her process brings to mind such Modernist masters as Richard Serra and Robert Smithson.
Curated by Alexandra Sachs, "Undertone" includes two large-scale rope works that reference Donald Judd's "stacks" sculptures, along with a selection of recent drawings and cast wall sculptures.
Presented as part of the 2014 deFINE ART program
Reception: Tuesday, Feb. 18, 7-8 p.m.
Gallery hours: Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
