Lorenzo Hurtado Segovia: 2011-12 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

The Faculty Development Grant award contributed toward the publication of an artist book entitled “by Deborah Calderwood” in May 2012. This book completes a conceptual and critical component to my first major body of work exhibited professionally. It serves as an analytical document of the work which makes up the eponymous body of work.

The exhibition ran for a month at CB1 Gallery in April 2010 and was well reviewed by Art Ltd. magazine and flavorpill.com. While these publications make insightful commentary, one missing aspect of the exhibition is brought forth: What is the relation to the original drawings? Where can they be seen to asses such appropriationist endeavor?
