Tara Donovan MOIRÉ

October 3, 2014–January 4, 2015









Artist Tara Donovan applies one rule, one process, and choice of one mundane material—from plastic cups, to toothpicks, straight pins, and straws— to create her installations. Multiplying single units into sometimes vast accumulations, her works evoke constellations, clouds, natural systems, and abstract topographies. Moiré, an installation composed of adding tape paper spread in gentle plateaus across the floor, is presented at SCMA for the first time since it was received as a gift from a private donor.  A selection of minimalist, post-minimalist, and process art from the collection are also on view.
