Thursday's Three on Art

Today, Thursday's Three comprises a trio of art-related videos.

✭ Below is Bending Sticks: The Sculpture of Patrick Dougherty. The short, which premiered in Durham, North Carolina, in December 2012, follows Dougherty — called "The Stickman" — as he and his crew gather sticks to build an installation at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh.

Also watch the CBS Sunday Morning report, "A North Carolina Sculptor Turns Sticks Into Art", March 15, 2015.

Dougherty's a wonderful artist. He created earlier this year an installation, A Bird in Hand, in Reston, Virginia, at the Greater Reston Arts Center (not far from where I live); the exhibition also included images of his works around the world. Rebekah Wingert-Jabi directed the film about the installation, A Bird in the Hand, which was screened yesterday at the center.

One of my favorite Washington, D.C., museums, the Renwick Gallery, is reopening this fall, after its two-year closing for renovation, with "Wonder" (November 13, 2015 - July 10, 2016), which will include a woven structure by Dougherty. Also featured: works by Jennifer Angus, Chakaia Booker, Gabriel Dawe, Janet Echelman, Tara Donovan, John Grade, Maya Lin, and Leo Villareal. Not to be missed!

✭ This next film, Zero Cycle, is directed and animated by South Korean artist moonassi, whose work I've mentioned before. The film is without sound. 

Be sure to look at moonassi's drawings at her Website.
