With Tom Joyce: Everything at Hand

TOM JOYCE: EVERYTHING AT HAND

Exhibition dates July 28th – December 31, 2017

CENTER FOR CONTEMPORARY ARTS

Santa Fe, NM 87505

Tom Joyce: Everything at Hand continues Joyce’s explorations of iron as a profoundly symbolic material whose regenerative matter, aesthetic malleability, and cultural meaning resonate locally and globally at the deepest levels of history and contemporary life. Stretching from CCA’s Tank Garage to its new outdoor sculpture garden, the exhibition features new works by Joyce influenced by his many years of working with industrially forged remnants and byproducts of large scale manufacturing. In addition to forged and cast iron sculpture, the show highlights iron-inspired photography, video, charred drawings and mixed media installations, including experimental bodies of work in materials newly utilized by Joyce.
