Artist Talk: Xylor Jane and B. Wurtz
February 3, 2012
Artists Xylor Jane and B. Wurtz will be present for a conversation with curator, Arnold J. Kemp.
Xylor Jane and B. Wurtz is a two-person show highlighting recent work of two important artists who consistently surprise with the simplicity of their means and process. B. Wurtz (b. 1948) makes sculptural assemblages from string, socks, buttons, household implements and plastic bags. Xylor Jane (b. 1963) draws on basic mathematical algorithms to make intricate painted patterns. This exhibition is curated by MFA in Visual Studies Chair, artist and curator, Arnold J. Kemp.
This exhibit is funded in part from a $40,000 grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. This grant went to support a six-exhibition series in the Feldman Gallery exploring various medias and methodologies in contemporary art.
