Opening Reception for “Three Sculpture and Two Installation, One with Sound” & “Objects”

Boston Sculptors Gallery

486 Harrison Avenue

The Boston Sculptors Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Andy Zimmermann. Three Sculptures and Two Installations, One with Sound shows the range of Zimmermann’s approach, from simple welded steel structures, painted black, to large-scale installations, one involving sensors, vibrating piano strings, and programmed electronics.
In The One with Sound, the viewer triggers a sensor which initiates a sequence of sounds made visible by the vibrating piano-strings, creating an interactive experience that unfolds differently for each viewer. The Wall plays with light and shadow through a three dimensional interweaving of space. Finally, three welded steel sculptures suggest mountainous landscapes and a family tree whose bifurcating lines reach a high level of complexity.
Andy Zimmermann is well-known in the Boston area for his large sculptures and installations at the DeCordova Museum, the Boston Common, the MIT Museum, the Museum of Science, the Rose Art Museum, the Illuminus Festival, and various other galleries and sculpture venues. He has had solo shows and sculpture installations in galleries in New York City and around the country, and has work in the permanent collections of the NorthShore Sculpture Park in Skokie and the Cedarhurst Sculpture Park in Mt. Vernon, IL.

Kalimah Muhammad’s sophomore solo exhibition, Objects, explores the contemporary state of being an object. Defined as the thing being observed or acted upon, Objects, highlights an object’s autonomy while seeking to occupy its own position in the world. Reflecting on art, language and societal structures, the exhibition examines themes of identity, influence, class, and value. The exhibition of text as well as wood and concrete sculptures continues Muhammad’s investigation of how the function of abstract forms can aid in our understanding of them and influence our relationship to each other.
Muhammad, a New Jersey-native, joined the Boston Sculptors Gallery in 2012.
