Plane Weave at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts

April 21, 2016 - August 07, 2016

For her Morris Gallery presentation, Plane Weave, Shotz has created a large tapestry-like sculpture composed of thousands of pieces of punched aluminum and stainless steel rings of the artist’s design that are connected by hand. A deep investigation into the work of light and gravity on the way that materials function in space, this new work also reflects upon the repeating patterns found in nature.

Art Basel Parcours, Basel, Switzerland

June 18 - 21, 2015

The 2015 edition of Parcours will be sited in the historical center of Basel around the city's iconic cathedral, infiltrating key locations such as the Museum of Culture, the Natural History Museum, the Town Hall and the Münsterplatz itself. Parcours looks to engage with Basel’s past and present by weaving artistic interventions into the fabric of the specific location each edition inhabits. Presented on stone walls throughout the Parcours area will be Alyson Shotz’s ‘Imaginary Sculptures’ (2014 – 2015). As six panels of text on enamel, these signs are initially experienced as ordinary street signs. However, each panel contains a short text describing an imagined sculpture, using language to conjure forms in the mind of the viewer, demonstrating the notion that every work of art exists in the imagination, first in the mind of the artist and later in the memory of the viewer.

 

23 sitespecific artworks by internationally renowned as well as emerging artists will be featured, the biggest selection to date, including works by Alexandra Bachzetsis, Davide Balula, Adriano Costa, Alicia Framis, Piero Golia, Tobias Kaspar, Alicja Kwade, Nate Lowman, Michaela Meise, Jonathan Monk, Vik Muniz, Ciprian Mure┼čan, Peter Regli, David Renggli, Ugo Rondinone, Yves Scherer, Lara Schnitger, Alyson Shotz, Daniel Silver, Philippe Thomas, Blair Thurman and Francisco Tropa.

Intersections 5 | Contemporary Art Projects at The Phillips

May 28 - October 25, 2015

The Phillips Collection celebrates the fifth anniversary of Intersections, which since 2009 has presented the work of 21 artists—10 men and 11 women—from the US and abroad. Each artist engaged the museum’s collection and architecture in different ways, creating diverse projects—both aesthetically and conceptually—and employing various media and approaches from wall-drawing, rubber-painting, bicycle spoke sculpture, and digital photography to video projection and yarn installation. This exhibition presents works by Intersections artists that have been acquired to date, both pieces that were featured in past installations and new works that are reminiscent or emblematic of the projects. Most importantly, the anniversary exhibition is a celebration of the Phillips’s mission to actively collect and display contemporary art.

Paul J. Cronin Memorial Lecture | deCordova Sculpture Park, and Museum, Lincoln, MA

April 16, 2015

 

Fascinated by the physics of the natural world, sculptor Alyson Shotz makes work that examines phenomena that are often considered inscrutable–gravity, light, space, and time. Using synthetic materials such as glass beads, stainless steel, and mirrors, Shotz renders mathematical and molecular structures on a monumental scale. Her sculptures are intricate, ethereal and responsive to a site’s conditions. Changes in light, time of day, and viewing angle, affect the presence of her work.

Force of Nature | Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art, Hamilton College

October 11, 2014 - April 5, 2015

This exhibition features recent work by Brooklyn-based sculptor Alyson Shotz, whose practice examines the properties and interactions of light, gravity, mass, and space. Shotz bridges disciplines in her work, drawing on scientific methods, mathematical principles, and literature, among other diverse fields. Often employing nontraditional materials such as glass beads, linen thread, stainless-steel filaments, and welded aluminum to create large-scale abstract sculptures, Shotz expands upon conventional notions of sculptural space and form.

 

Alyson Shotz: Force of Nature marks the artist’s most ambitious show to date. More than fifty works in various mediums are on view throughout the museum, representing the range of Shotz’s artistic output. The exhibition includes a monumental sculptural installation; a newly created Möbius strip–inspired sculpture commissioned by the museum for its collection; a site-specific, fifty-foot volumetric wall drawing; and a collaborative animation, as well as digital and traditional prints, photographs, and ceramics.
