Mining the versatile properties of metal, Sculpted, Etched and Cut brings together a selection of artworks from the Studio Museum’s collection that incorporate metal as medium or that were produced through metal-based processes. The exhibition features an array of sculptures and works on paper by artists including Melvin Edwards (b. 1937), Glenn Ligon (b. 1960), Stephanie Pogue (1944—2002), and Michael Queenland (b. 1970). Sculpted, Etched and Cut was organized by Assistant Curator Lauren Haynes and continues the Museum’s exhibition history of illuminating new facets of the permanent collection.
