About this Event
8 Garden St., Cambridge, MA 02138https://www.radcliffe.harvard.edu/event/2023-mary-lum-the-moving-parts-exhibition
For this newly commissioned exhibition, Mary Lum has created an artist’s book and installation featuring photographs of temporary constructions made from a palette of broken vintage letterforms. The small constructions carry ideas about language coming into being and piling up on itself. Fragments are rearranged in attempts to communicate, to form something whole and understandable, against backgrounds of varying colors. Lum’s photographs, letterforms, and artist’s book appear with a selection of sketchbooks that present the artist’s mode of working through collage. All are surrounded by a large-scale paint work that envelops the gallery, the bars of color echoing the Corita Papers that inspired Lum’s publication Moving Parts (&).
