Alyson Shotz: Force of Nature – Visual Art Exhibition

Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art presents “Alyson Shotz: Force of Nature,” on view May 22nd through July 11th in Charleston. 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. This exhibition marks the artist’s most ambitious show to date. More than 50 works in various mediums will be on view throughout the Halsey Institute, representing the range of Shotz’s artistic output.
