What Does a Pencil Know?

February 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - March 1, 2020 @ 7:00 pm

“What Does a Pencil Know?” is an exhibition of sculpture, drawing, and video by three Carnegie Mellon MFA candidates: Huidi Xiang, Lau Hochi, and Max Spitzer. Developed with a shared motif of handwriting, What Does a Pencil Know? explores the products of attempting to structure and externalize one’s thoughts. Here, conventions of explanation, iteration, translation, and illustration are probed for their potential, all underlined by a mutual and urgent desire for effective communication.

This exhibition also features a lounge curated and constructed by the three artists, where visitors may eat, read, socialize, and reflect.

Opening Reception: Friday, February 21, 7-9pm
Open Hours: February 22, 23, 29, and March 1, 1-5pm
