Art By Constraint: A New Documentary by Dale Schierholt

Saturday, January 11, 2014, 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
MCASD La Jolla

This documentary takes you inside the studio of David Adey, an award-winning and nationally recognized  San Diego-based artist.  Director Dale Schierholt, best known for his films on acclaimed artists such as Louise Nevelson and Robert Indiana, spent one year with Adey observing the creation of his new work and engaging in intimate conversations, which are the hallmark of Schierholt’s filmmaking style. Adey’s work, while rooted in conceptualism, is not void of a strong aesthetic sense. By developing a set of constraints that guide and define each new piece, Adey creates engaging work in which the aesthetic and concept work hand in hand, one flowing naturally from the other.

This program is free to attend. Tickets can be collected at both the La Jolla and Downtown locations during public hours. Both the filmmaker and artist will be in attendance. Following this screening, MCASD Members are invited to a reception at Scott White Contemporary Art for the opening of David Adey’s exhibition. The gallery is located at 7655 Girard Ave. Suite 101, La Jolla, CA 92037.
