"Drawing By Chance: Installation by Margaret B. Tittemore"
2001-05-16 until 2001-06-02
Inspired by the work of composer John Cage, Margaret B. Tittemore
transports his chance operation techniques from audio to visual display. In
fact, when Cage created his own watercolors, prints and drawings, he used
choice to establish much of the nature of his work and chance assisted
him in allowing the intrinsic nature of the materials to reveal a
refreshingly new presence. In Tittemore's case, her elements are
handwritten text, printing plates, and ink applied by brush on paper.
Margaret B. Tittemore has been a Mobius Artist Group member since
1992. She has participated in two international exchanges between Mobius
artists and artists from Macedonia (Liquor Amnii, 1996-97) and Croatia
(Taking Liberty, 1999-2000) presenting interactive installation and
performance. She has collaborated with artists in the Touchable Stories
Group doing installations about the neighborhoods of Allston, Cambridge and
Upham's Corner. Issues of female adolescent development have been the
source for her collaborations with teens, Baby Express (1999) and Coming of
Age (1998), installations sponsored by Environmental Arts, Inc. and the
Fuller Museum of Art. Tittemore recently did a performance at Bridgewater
State College, as part of her solo exhibit, Crossing Borders. She is the
Teen Docent Coordinator at the Fuller Museum of Art and a Visiting Lecturer
at Bridgewater State College for Three Dimensional Design and Drawing.
