Featuring and curated by the student artists of Sahar Khoury’s Advanced Sculpture class, They See Me Rollin’ / Allopatry / Oh Dolly is a show of mobile, wheeled sculptures.

Over the course of the exhibition, the work will be reconfigured into several different installations. These various installations, which involve the recycling of existing elements and the addition of new elements, are framed in such a way as to form several sub-exhibitions, and reflect the evolving perspectives of student curators.

They See Me Rollin’

They See Me Rollin’ features a blend of unique meanings and materials crafted onto rolling dollies. By using found materials and pieces of furniture, the artists have deconstructed and reconstructed their ideas to formulate an entire show on wheels. The exhibition features conceptual, humorous, experimental, and figurative works that create a complex variety of artworks brought together by their rolling qualities.

Allopatry

Allopatric speciation occurs when a single species becomes geographically separated; each group evolves new and distinctive traits.  In the artistic world, removing objects from their normal uses and placing them in new surroundings calls to attention details that would otherwise be overlooked.  And through interaction with other objects, becomes a part of a new, larger whole.

This exhibition explores the relationship between the group, the individual, the artist and the curator in an attempt to answer the question: how can an armature on wheels come to life?

Oh Dolly!

The attachment of a sculpture onto wheels introduces the notion of movement by removing its permanence from a specific space or place. As the dimension of mobility engages with the spatial manipulation and assemblage techniques evident in such structures, a playful dance is seen. Contrasting materialities instigate dialogue; we roll into an alternate built environment.
