Michelle Stuart

Ongoing, Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street
Beacon, New York

In 1972 Michelle Stuart began working on a group of large-scale paper scrolls that incorporated frottage
(a rubbing technique) with graphite to capture the uneven and unique topography of the earth’s surface. Stuart—who developed an interest in documenting the specificities of land formations while working as a topographical draftsman for the United States Army Corps of Engineers—has described her rubbing process
as “making something manifest that you couldn’t really see otherwise.”
