MATT SAVITSKY // Minty Untucked: Am I Drawing Now?

OPENING: Thursday October 31, 2013, 6PM-9PM

LECTURE: Talk with Todd // Thursday October 31, 2013, 2PM-3PM

LOCATION: Experimental Drawing Studio, Rm. 202, SME Building, UC San Diego

As part of the Experimental Drawing Studio’s (EDS) series, Am I Drawing Now, Matt Savitsky will present Minty Untucked, an exhibition of drawings produced during his tenure in the MFA program. The EDS will serve as a momentary frame for Savitsky’s drawings. In a special event, Savitsky will host his collaborator, music doctoral student, Todd Moellenberg, to talk about the crosshatched nature of their collaboration. Specifically, Savitsky and Moellenberg will discuss “rehearsal space,” parsing methods of drawing, and embodying musical score. This discussion will build upon the ongoing dialogue about embedded drawing practices.

In conjunction with:

Home Theater
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 31, 6-9pm

Dates: Running until November 29

Location: SME 201, UC San Diego

The Experimental Sculpture and Painting Initiative is proud to present Home Theater, a three-person exhibition of painting and sculpture featuring UC San Diego Visual Art MFA candidates Tanya Brodsky, Joshua Miller, and Matt Savitsky. The exhibition considers the domestic as both a tactile and psychological space of self-identification and cloistered theatricality. Brodsky, Miller, and Savitsky are first, second and third year candidates respectively. The exhibition will open in conjunction with Matt Savitsky’s Minty Untucked, a collection of works on paper at the Experimental Drawing Studio.

Experimental Drawing Studio is part of the Visual Arts Department at UCSD and is located in room 202 in the new Structural and Material’s Engineering Building. The studio provides an active research environment with a primary interest in defining drawing as an inclusive and expanded form. The Studio’s reach spans across university departments, institutions, and geographies.

Experimental Drawing Studio committee: Amy Adler, Nichole Speciale, Emily R. Grenader, Joshua Tonies, Allison Spence, and Kara Joslyn.
