Model Studies is curated by and features a new body of work by German artist Thomas Demand. For the Graham Foundation, Demand has approached the exhibition as a site of experimental research and selected work by Fernand Léger, Francis Bruguière, Thomas Scheibitz, and photos by architecture students at the Constructivist school VKhUTEMAS in Moscow that together dismantle a rigid, formal worldview and explore methods of representation other than realism. Central to this idea is the model, from its most literal to its most abstract manifestation. For more information on the exhibition, click here.
