Art, like many other fields of research, is driven by active processes. This becomes particularly apparent when we discern the ways artists manipulate materials and the properties of form in relation to how we actively perceive and inhabit the physical world. The premise of this exhibition follows a similar impetus; one informed by artists interested in the limits and possibilities of sculpture as an expansive and evolving experimental terrain, and how the objects around us shape our lived experiences. With Richard Serra’s commissioned work Pivot (2021), recently installed on Kenyon’s West Quad, the exhibition Sculpture as Verb takes Serra’s seminal work Verb List (1967) as an introduction to the performative, exploratory, and action-driven processes inherent to making art. This exhibition also aims to reimagine how Serra’s drawing gave way to a new generation of artists who consider sculpture as an active vehicle for sensorial, spatial, relational, and social experiences. — Daisy Desrosiers, Director and Chief Curator, Gund Gallery The Gund Gallery exhibitions and programs are made possible, in part, by the Gund Gallery Board of Directors and the Ohio Arts Council.
