Nora Schultz and The Renaissance Society
New Work Project Grant

Harpo Foundation is pleased to provide project support for an exhibition by Nora Schultz at The Renaissance Society. Nora Schultz produces sculptural arrangements that double as analog printing studios. Her primary materials are discarded objects scavenged from around her studio and the site of exhibition—i.e. metal bars and sheets, grates, tubes, plastics. Schultz transforms this refuse into contact printing apparatuses, stencils, even simple rotary presses with which she prints (often as public performance) rowdy abstractions intimate and monumental, exhibited individually or in heaps.
