Abstract Ancestry: Machine-Works on Paper opening & conversation


Get Directions

Join us for the opening reception and a conversation with Detroit-based artist Matthew Angelo Harrison. Exhibition runs through May 4.

For his solo show Abstract Ancestry: Machine-Works on Paper, Matthew Angelo Harrison ​will produce a suite of mechanical drawings with his homemade 3D printer. Using books and documents containing problematic historic portrayals as the substrate for his drawings, Harrison is able to explore issues of representation. The exhibition also examines abstraction; setting the printers to work at a low resolution ensures that imperfections and variability come through in these machine-produced drawings. Harrison will make adjustments ​to ​the printer as it continues to create new drawings for the span of the exhibition.
