Gaa Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming group exhibition Hold, Run, opening Saturday, November 10 in Provincetown with a reception on Saturday, November 24 from 3 – 5 pm.

Hold, Run presents a range of approaches to sculpture and its ability to create, transform and occupy space: the blurred edges of what constitutes two and three dimensional forms, the life-like facsimile of the cast form as a stand-in for the human body, the transformation of found objects to convey ideas about use, history and the proposals of the future, the transcendent use of materials, and the ultimate passage of time and temporality seen through material resilience and impermanence. Hold, Run examines the world-building capacities of sculpture to simultaneously express the familiar and the strange, physiological and metaphorical.


Hold, Run is an aesthetically diverse rumination on the medium of sculpture and its ability to convey ideas surrounding space and its literal, psychological, physical and metaphysical qualities. Hold, Run extends ideas of sculpture across disciplines and showcases the work of artists that bring backgrounds of a variety of media, including painting, drawing, installation, photography, and video. Exhibited artists include Esteban Cabeza de Baca, Isa Genzken, Peter Hutchinson, Gary Kuehn, Erika Wastrom, Gillian Wearing, Erin Woodbrey, and Peter Zimmermann.
