Curator’s tour of Judith Scott at Centennial Square

Late American artist Judith Scott (1943–2005) is widely known for her engrossing, enigmatic fibre sculptures. Enveloping found objects—from wood to magazines to bicycle wheels—in yarn, thread and knotted cloth, Scott created strikingly original forms from the sparest of materials. Deaf and born with Down syndrome, Scott was introduced to fibre art at age 44; in the eighteen years that would follow until her death, she would produce a masterful body of work, achieving international recognition for her arresting sculptural forms. Surveyed here in Canada for the first time, this exhibition will cover a broad spectrum of Scott’s output and chart its significant influence on contemporary sculptural practices. Oakville Galleries’ Director Matthew Hyland will provide an exhibition tour.
