Mel Kendrick: Seeing Things in Things
Addison Gallery of American Art’s latest exhibit assembles a full range of works that reflect Mel Kendrick’s provocative, ongoing investigations into the fundamentals and possibilities of sculpture. Presenting approximately 60 sculptures as well as a selection of table-top sculptural “sketches,” prints and photographs spanning this adventurous artist’s decades-long career, this major traveling exhibition will explore how Kendrick exploits the essential properties of his selected medium, whether wood, rubber, or, more recently, concrete, to create sculpture that inherently lays bare the process by which it was made. A unique opportunity to study the artist’s unrelenting interrogation of the meaning of sculpture, this exhibition addresses Kendrick’s pivotal place in the field of contemporary art. Mel Kendrick: Seeing Things in Things opens April 10, 2021.
