Michelle Stuart:
Drawn from Nature
July 21, 2013 to October 27, 2013

Since the late 1960s, Michelle Stuart has become internationally known for a rich and diverse body of work engendered by her lifelong interest in the natural world and the cosmos. Working in drawing, sculpture, photography, video, installation, and site-specific earthworks, she has pursued a subtle and responsive dialogue with the natural world, distinct from the epic gestures of contemporaneous Land Art. Works range in date from 1968 to 2010. The exhibition has been organized by Anna Lovatt, lecturer in Modern and Contemporary art history at the University of Manchester, UK. She has published widely on drawing in the context of post-Minimal and Conceptual art and is currently at work on a monograph entitled Drawing Degree Zero: The Line from Minimal to Conceptual Art. She is an editor of the Oxford Art Journal and a regular contributor to Artforum International.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with essays by Anna Lovatt, Alicia Longwell, Jane McFadden, Nancy Princenthal, and an interview with the artist by Julie Joyce.

Curated by Anna Lovatt. Organised and toured by the Djanogly Art Gallery, Lakeside Arts Centre, UK.
