Create installation view, Longwood Center for the Visual Arts, 2013
Create co-curator Matthew Higgs is partnering with the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art to present the first major retrospective exhibition of the work of Judith Scott. Scott’s artwork, which was prominently featured in Create, will be on view at the Brooklyn Museum from October 24, 2014 – March 29, 2015. Titled Judith Scott—Bound and Unbound, the exhibition will feature Scott’s remarkable sculptures and 3D assemblages as well as a selection of works on paper. About Scott’s artistic practice, the Brooklyn Museum states:
“Judith Scott’s work is celebrated for its astonishing visual complexity. In a career spanning just seventeen years, Scott developed a unique and idiosyncratic method to produce a body of work of remarkable originality. Often working for weeks or months on individual pieces, she used yarn, thread, fabric, and other fibers to envelop found objects into fastidiously woven, wrapped, and bundled structures.”
