While the University Art Gallery will be closed to the public until further notice, it continues to provide virtual resources for students and the community.
From A Distance is the University Art Gallery’s programming response to our new virtual environment during the COVID-19 crisis. The Gallery has invited artists with whom we’ve worked and in our community for a series of conversations, demonstrations, screenings, and studio visits. These dialogues are about making art and presenting it to an audience.
We launch From A Distance with a conversation between University Art Gallery Director Aandrea Stang and artist Kim Tucker. Kim Tucker’s exhibition, Sunday Morning, opened at the University Art Gallery in February 2019 and remains installed. The exhibition is derived from a concentrated residency on the University campus during winter 2019/2020. The exhibition presents this new sculptural work along with a series of drawings.
Tucker and Stang sat down in their respective homes for a video conversation about Tucker’s artmaking process at the end of April. Following their conversation, over the course of a week Tucker moved her camera into her studio and the artist demonstrated how she creates her work. The conversation and the edited version of the week’s work are presented here.
