Group show at Sediment Gallery

Paying Attention is an exhibition presenting the various research strategies and preliminary processes artists utilize in order to give form to their experiences, interests, and current events. Invited artists were asked to share some aspect of their ideations that are integral to how they foster introspection and divergent thinking in their art making. Works presented in the exhibition include the traditional sketchbook, digital archives, material experiments, and writing exercises. Paying Attention offers a glimpse into how artists understand their work as a conversation within art and social history.
