Judith Scott—Bound and Unbound

Mar 11, 2016-Jul 10, 2016
Initially presented at the Brooklyn Museum, New York, Bound and Unbound is the first solo museum survey of artist Judith Scott (1943–2005), whose career spanned just seventeen years. Born in Columbus, OH, with Down syndrome, Scott was introduced to art making at Oakland’s Creative Growth Art Center, where she produced a remarkable body of mixed media sculptures. Her powerful, complex forms reveal a delicate and tactile sensibility alongside a deeply considered use of color.

AAM exhibitions are made possible by the Marx Exhibition Fund. General exhibition support is provided by the Toby Devan Lewis Visiting Artist Fund.

Judith Scott—Bound and Unbound is organized by the Brooklyn Museum. The exhibition is curated by Catherine J. Morris, Sackler Family Curator for the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Brooklyn Museum, and Matthew Higgs, artist and Director/Chief Curator of White Columns.

In Aspen, the exhibition is overseen by Heidi Zuckerman, Nancy and Bob Magoon CEO and Director. The presentation of Bound and Unbound in Aspen is funded in part by the AAM National Council.
