Full Description

Corporeal Complexities: Bodies in Process allows artists to explore intricate theme of placing the human body in context of an ever-changing world. An apparently permanent world of seemingly unchanging humans is actually changing quite rapidly. Individual changes accumulate and create complexities as layer upon layer builds. As part of a continuing theme identified by the visiting artists and exhibitions committee in the Art Department, Corporeal Complexities features work by Master of Fine Art Departments (MFA) students studying at Clemson University, University of South Carolina and Winthrop University. An undergraduate Honors English Accelerated Composition course collaborated with the Lee Gallery to conceive, curate, and promote the exhibit. The exhibit was juried by Ginia Sweeney, Coordinator of Museum Interpretation at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA.

Press Release

Artists in Clemson University’s Master of Fine Arts program in collaboration with honors students in an undergraduate English Accelerated Composition course will exhibit works that broadly interpret and examine the multifaceted concept of “process” Dec. 6-Jan. 25 at Clemson Visual Arts – Greenville, 1278 Pendleton St. Adam Glick, associate director of Galerie Lelong in Manhattan, juried the exhibit.

The exhibit simultaneously examines the artists’ conception of their own process and the way in which art contributes to a broader sense of how we all go about shaping and responding to the world around us. Works in the exhibit interpret the artistic process in terms of materials and the passage of time, as well as the relation to mechanical, biological and environmental processes. Featured artists include Adrienne Lichliter, Alexandra Giannelle, Ali Hammond, Alyssia Reiser Prince, Aubree Ross, Ayako Abe-Miller, Brent Pafford, David Armistead, David Gerhard, Hilary Siber, Joel Murray, Laken Bridges, Lindsey Elsey, Nina Kawar and Tanna Burchinal.

The Clemson Visual Arts at Clemson University worked in collaboration with English honors students in the conception and execution of the exhibit. Contributing English honors students include: Matthew R. Adamson, Deepti M. Athavale, Luke V. Bauer, Kayla A. Brunelle, Holly C. Erickson, Brian C. Fitzgerald, Benjamin A. Jones, Dylan A. Pyle, William C. Tharpe, Mary K. Thorne, Peter D. Tomasic and Kelsey S. Turner.
