exhibition | The American Artist’s Hand Archive Bronze Hands

Vanessa Hoheb & Thomas Donahue - Sunday June 4
Factory Floor

The American Artist’s Hand Archive has been established to document through castings in bronze the hands of many of America’s most distinguished and venerated visual artists.

Each artist, in their own way, approaches aesthetic challenges through the most basic manipulation of material with gifted hands. These hands bear the marks of use that are inextricably tied to important contributions to contemporary American art.

Initiated in 2009, the Archive is an ongoing project with twenty-five participating artists to date and seventeen bronze castings completed.
