Force of Nature

This eponymous exhibition features new and recent work by Alyson Shotz, a Brooklyn-based abstract artist who creates monumental sculptures, photo-collages, and installations. Her 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 fields.

The pairing of these exhibitions is intended to highlight humanitarian crises in two troubled African nations. In an effort to familiarize our audiences with aspects of history that do not often receive in-depth attention in conventional media, these exhibitions serve as examples of the College of Charleston’s campus-wide commitment to the discussion of international issues.
