The Davis Museum and Cultural Center at Wellesley College Presents “Reconnaissance: Three Wall Drawings”
January 1 - June 30, 2010
Christine Hiebert’s artwork is an exploration of space: she draws, articulates, and redefines it, evoking a personal, metaphorical, architectural space of her own. Her site-specific wall piece, which will reopen the Davis Museum’s Tanner Gallery, utilizes the language of line on a large scale. Composed of blue adhesive tape as well as paper rolled with ink, this multi-part work expressively commands and engages the monumental architectural space of this light-filled top floor gallery. Hiebert has created site-specific installations for, among others, the Drawing Center, New York (2003), the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich (2005), and the Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover, MA (2007); her work has been exhibited throughout the U.S and Europe, and her drawings are in many public and private collections.
