Bortolami Gallery presents Springweather and people, a group exhibition including ten artists whose work highlight different approaches in assemblage.

Cross generational in approach, and underscoring a diversity of materials that are stitched, crimped, nailed, and pasted together, both sculptural and painted, the exhibition follows the wide array of methods and techniques for layering. Retooling the term first put to use in the 1960s as an important innovation in abstraction, the exhibition offers a contemporary vantage for artworks which take on the impulse of gathering. The title of the exhibition, borrowed from a 1955 Merce Cunningham piece costumed by Robert Rauschenberg, pays homage to the first generation of assemblage artists for whom the term was coined. The artists gathered in the exhibition continue to investigate the formal approaches set forth over half a century ago, enriching this field with socio-political concerns of our contemporary moment.
