Arlene Shechet: Urgent Matter
Across plaster, porcelain, and paper, New York–based artist Arlene Shechet’s intensive, playful practice consistently pushes the boundaries of what sculpture can be. Over the last decade, she has worked extensively in ceramics, crafting a visual language that breaks many of the medium’s conventions. For her exhibition at CAM, Shechet premieres a series of free-standing sculptures alongside several works from her series Parallel Play, developed during a residency at New York’s Dieu Donne Paper Mill in 2012. Giving new meaning to the idea of “work on paper,” the Parallel Play series occupies a space between two and three dimensions, serving as an immediate, spontaneous foil to her larger sculptural practice.
