For British sculptor Henry Moore (1898-1986) drawing was both ancillary to his three-dimensional body of work and autonomous from it. This significant exhibition, organized by Hauser & Wirth in collaboration with the Moore family, highlights Moore's prodigious talent as a draftsman, featuring work produced over six decades.
Moore never abandoned the life-drawing practice he had initiated as a student in Paris in the 1920s. If Moore's sculptural subjects (his reclining figures, for example) furnished him with constraints in which to work, drawing offered him opportunities to refine his "ideas for sculpture" but, just as importantly, to digress from them.
On paper, Moore worked in an exceptionally diverse variety of media ranging from chalk and crayon to pen and ink, often all in the same drawing; in every case he was as attuned to his materials as he was in his sculpture-indeed, the intense physicality of his drawings could be deemed sculptural.
This exhibition, supported in part by Hauser & Wirth, presents spectacular selection of diverse works on paper by one of the twentieth century's most celebrated artists.

The Aspen Art Museum’s third Jane and Marc Nathanson Distinguished Artist in Residence is New York-based artist Marlo Pascual. Pascual combines glamorous photographs of women from the 1940s and 50s with found objects and light sources to create brooding, psychologically charged work. Pascual’s elegant installations and theatrical lighting—varying from old lamps and candlelight to fluorescents and colored theater gels—animate the women in the photographs, enacting the dramatic potential frozen in the still frames of a bygone era. The hope and allure of Hollywood’s past is transmuted into melancholy, reflecting the unfulfilled dreams of countless anonymous actresses and models. This will be Marlo Pascual’s first one-person museum exhibition.
The AAM Jane and Marc Nathanson Distinguished Artist in Residence program furthers the museum’s goal of engaging the larger community with contemporary art. Residencies can last between forty-eight hours and two months, resulting in a new body of work exhibited at the AAM.
Marlo Pascual was born in 1972 in Nashville, Tennessee, and currently lives in Brooklyn, New York. She has had one person exhibitions at the Swiss Institute, New York, and Casey Kaplan, New York. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at the Henry Art Gallery, University of Washington, Seattle; Sculpture Center, New York; White Columns, New York; and Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, Brattleboro, Vermont. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Dallas Museum of Art; Seattle Art Museum; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
