An Afternoon with Jesse Harrod: Macramé Demonstration and Exhibition Tour
Free with Museum Admission (Discounted for SculptureCenter Members)
Demonstration: 1 to 2 pm
Tour: 2 to 2:45 pm
Please join contemporary artist, and Fiber & Material Studies Department Head Jesse Harrod for an afternoon of demonstrations and discussion inspired by the exhibition Françoise Grossen Selects. This in-gallery encounter is co-presented by the nonprofit arts institution SculptureCenter in Long Island City, NY, where Harrod’s work is featured in the exhibition In Practice: Material Deviance, now through March 27, 2017.
Beginning at 1 pm, Harrod will conduct an in-gallery macramé demonstration as she works on a new suspended artwork created using paracord. Harrod’s artworks are built through the interplay of many brightly colored paracords knotted and shaped into suggestive forms.
At 2 pm, Harrod will be joined by MAD’s Windgate Research and Collections Curator Elissa Auther for a co-led tour of the exhibition Françoise Grossen Selects. Together, Auther and Harrod will offer interpretations of Grossen’s artwork from the complimentary perspectives of a historian and contemporary artist.
