Artists take a step back from their everyday studio practice to create new artwork that serve as visual metaphors for the routine of art-making in the group exhibition In Bringing Forth. The show, curated by Jeannette Tremblay, features ten artists whose process of making photographs, paintings, sculptures, and performances contradicts the historical image of the Artist working in isolation with steadfast direction. Often, the mistakes and the risky experiments lead to the strongest body of work that bring forth a platform for further discussions and understanding for the artist.
In Bringing Forth provides the opportunity for these artists affiliated with the Hyde Park Art Center’s school program to think how they would visualize their practice and present new work in response. Through a sheer number of distinct techniques, visual languages and strategies, they open up their decision-making processes from the beginning to end, allowing a wider, more reflected visualization of the inevitable peeks and plateaus intrinsic to art making. These artists invite us to share in the wanderings, wonderings, decisions and discoveries embedded in making their creative way through the world.
