Judith Scott—Bound and Unbound at the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum.
Thinking about doing a kind of exploration of Scott's work through my ideas on artmaking as entanglement. I recognize the pun here-- Scott's work is literally comprised of entangled things. It might be interesting to acknowledge and represent that Scott's Down's Syndrome and deafness played a large part in her artmaking. The artist's life plays a large part in what and how they make--so why not explore this through Scott's work. It maybe interesting and eye-opening to think through this work as a product of an entanglement.
PLUS-- there are some excellent questions on the museum's website from museum visitors about this exhibition click here
Here's what I'm reading http://openhumanitiespress.org/new-materialism.html
Issues surrounding new materialism/post-human thought has been finding its way into my research. It seems to coalesce with the work of Karen Barad, whose work I have been thinking through for some time. Barad's intra-action as it may relate to artmaking is of particular interest. This book features interviews with several scholars working with and through ideas surrounding embodiment, materiality, and subject/object issues.
For my purposes this book opens new possibilities in the discussion of how new materialism scholarship combined with Barad's idea of intra-action can provide new insights and perhaps even new frameworks through which to view artmaking.
