Metal Museum Spring Exhibitions

Metal Museum Spring Exhibitions

This spring, the Metal Museum is hosting many exhibitions to help promote Tennessee metalworkers. This organization, located in Memphis, Tennessee, is “the only institution in the United States devoted exclusively to the advancement of the art and craft of fine metalwork.” This goal is achieved through the promotion of exhibitions, classes, and many other artist-focused events and opportunities.

There are currently three exhibitions, as well as a permanent collection, that are being held at the Metal Museum.

On the Edge: Process, Material, and Form in Contemporary Knife Making will be shown from January 11 to May 25, 2014. This exhibit “explores the ways in which contemporary knife makers push the medium in surprising directions while upholding the highest standards of craft.”

Tributaries: Kirk Lang will be on exhibit from March 8 to June 15, 2014. This is a collection of kinetic sculpture that uses sensors to activate, so that “each sculpture will move and respond to the presence of viewers.”

Alison Ouelette-Kirby and Noah Kirby: Un chien regarde bien l’évêque will be shown from March 22 to May 25, 2014. This exhibition will take up the Museum’s entire second floor “with a site-specific installation consisting of old and new work, animated by mechanical elements and sound.”
