Exhibition Reception: Clues & Scientific Method says
The Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia is pleased to present Clues & Scientific Method, a group exhibition at Marcia Wood Gallery in Atlanta featuring Dodd MFA candidates working across a variety of media. Editor and artistic director of ART PAPERS, Victoria Camblin, selected the artists for their research-based method of production and evidentiary qualities or approaches. “While visiting the graduate studios in Athens I noticed an investigative or diagnostic impulse in work being made in all disciplines,” says Camblin. “Students were approaching their chosen materials and subject matter as a detective approaches clues in a mystery, or as a doctor approaches a patient’s symptoms. I found myself referring them to Carlo Ginzburg’s 1980 essay ‘Morelli, Freud, and Sherlock Holmes: Clues and Scientific Method,’ which draws from a range of subjects to suggest an approach to knowledge acquisition that I believe to have strong applications in today’s so-called post-truth world. This essay, together with the students’ works, became the inspiration for the show, and gives it its title.” The exhibition will run from Feburary 21-24.

Artists in the exhibition include Megan Burchett, Ally Christmas, Ellie Dent, Lauren O’Connor Korb, Deepanjan Mukhopadhyay, Johanna Norry, Kaleena Stasiak, Stephanie Sutton, and Dan Vu.
