The ICPA at Colgate University Presents

Allan McCollum - The Shapes Project: Shapes for Hamilton

2010 Christian A. Johnson Endeavor Foundation Distinguished Artist-in-Residence in the Department of Art and Art History

The Clifford Gallery, March 8th through March 31st, 2010
Opening Reception, March 10th, 430 – 630 pm

The Shapes Project is a system developed by the artist Allan McCollum that can generate 31,000,000,000 unique two-dimensional 'shapes' more than enough for every person on the planet. Shapes for Hamilton will produce an individual shape for each resident of Town of Hamilton, New York -- a community-wide collaboration between the artist, the townspeople and the students, staff and faculty of Colgate University. At the conclusion of the project – which will include an exhibition of the complete set of the nearly 6000 shapes at Colgate's Clifford Gallery -- each resident will be invited, without obligation, to collect their own shape provided free of charge and signed by the artist.

Allan McCollum
was born in California in 1944, and lives and works in New York. He has spent over thirty years exploring how objects achieve public and personal meaning in a world constituted in mass production.

McCollum has had over 100 solo exhibitions, including retrospectives at the Musée d'Art Moderne, Villeneuve d'Ascq, Lille, France (1998); the Sprengel Museum, Hannover, Germany (1995-96); the Serpentine Gallery, London (1990); the Rooseum Center for Contemporary Art, Malmo, Sweden (1990); IVAM Centre del Carme, Valencia, Spain (1990); Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, The Netherlands (1989), and Portikus, Frankfurt, Germany (1988). He has produced public art projects in the United States and Europe, and his works are held in nearly seventy major art museum collections worldwide
