"Brass Tacks"

July 22 - August 19, 2017

Anat Ebgi is pleased to present Brass Tacks on view at the gallery from July 22nd through August 19th.

Organized by Ryan Wallace, Brass Tacks brings together artists who glean highly specific material spoils from the outside world to fuel and map their work environments. Drawing from piles of photograms, stacks of paper, shards of Perspex, spools of Targhee fibers, documentation of light reflections, measurements of body mass, and hoards of wooden furniture, all manner of actions are employed in forging the works in the show. Brass Tacks considers how from the mise-en-scène of the studio, subtractive selection is as informative as the additive actions that result in visible, finished, artworks. These eleven artists employ sculpture, ceramics, photography, collage, knitting, painting and glass blowing to address a variety of concerns while a spirit of place, accumulation, and editing pervades all.

Brass Tacks: 22 Jul 19 Aug 2017 at Anat Ebgi in Los Angeles, United States,” Wall Street International, August 19, 2017.
