After last year's (second annual) paper show, in which more than 50 artists were invited to present works on paper, the premise for this year's exhibition is significantly scaled back: 15 artists were invited to submit a single work on paper. Further, the brief was relatively simple: artists were allowed to do whatever they wanted, provided that this was completed on the standard paper size of 76x55cm. The resulting 15 works span a spectrum of media, subject matter, and styles. A few artists, such as Barry Reigate, Miles Debas, Holly Mills, and Antonia Showering, have shown in the annual paper show previously; however, the majority of artists will be making their debut both in the paper show and at the gallery, including Chris Bogia, Gord Bond, Christian Clayton, Sainer Etam, Caroline Larsen, and Sara Anstis.

NOVEMBER - MAY / 2017 - 2018

MADISON MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART / Madison WI

CLAYTON BROTHERS / Group Exhibition 

November 4th, 2017 through May 6th, 2018

BIG presents over thirty large-scale, modern and contemporary artworks from MMoCA’s permanent collection, including works by Sam Gilliam, Ellsworth Kelly, Robert Rauschenberg and Jennifer Steinkamp. Historically, large-scale art was reserved for mural paintings in the narrative tradition, but soon artists adopted large canvases to capture new and big ideas—particularly the Abstract Expressionists in the 1950s. This shift to a larger scale demanded galleries and museums adjust their spaces and viewers alter their way of engaging with the work. Through these large works, artists created a physical experience that demanded the viewer’s attention.

More than other formal elements in the visual arts—such as color, line, or shape—scale directs attention towards the capacity of the artwork to respond to a specific location and call into play the role of the viewer. Above all, the large-scale works of art in this exhibition have the ability to astonish.

Generous funding for BIG has been provided by Nancy Mohs; JoAnne Robbins and David Falk; the Theda and Tamblin Clark Smith Family Foundation; Cathie and Jim Burgess; Hooper Corporation and General Heating & Air Conditioning; J.H. Findorff & Son Inc.; Nancy Doll and Michael Bernhard; Dane Arts; Bell Laboratories; Karen and Craig Christianson; a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts; and MMoCA Volunteers.
