Aaron Meyers at Montserrat College of Art

  • Hardie Building, Rm 201 23 Essex Street Beverly, MA (map)

In conjunction with I Will Go On... an exhibition at Monserrat College of Art Galleries. 

Aaron Meyers illustrates the bridge between sculpture and performance in his infinite performance “It Must Be Nearly Finished” (2012-ongoing). Now in its sixth iteration, Meyers continually drills 1/16” holes into the surface of a wooden plank bracketed to the gallery wall until he falls.

Curated by Associate Curator of Exhibitions and Programs, Pam Campanaro, I Will Go On... exhibits artists whose practices parallel the characteristics of a marathoner: endurance, repetition, and focus. Each artist on view employs repetitive, laborious acts such as: drilling tiny holes into wood until it breaks, painting with a needlepoint, compulsively collecting, or meticulously hand-cutting paper to demonstrate precise focus.

I Will Go On... is on view at Montserrat Gallery, January 11 - April 2, 2016
