Will Hutnick: But We’re Getting Off the Subject

Returning to Providence College after nearly a decade, PC alum (‘07) and New York artist Will Hutnick transforms Hunt-Cavanagh Gallery to present “But We’re Getting Off the Subject,” an immersive installation that celebrates color and the playful re-use of materials and abstractly personal histories. The installation features a series of interconnected wall drawings and mobile-like sculptures made up of his signature scrap paintings—bits of tape and overspray that have been stripped from his studio walls and carefully arranged on paper and clear mylar.

This exhibition is presented in conjunction Providence College's Centennial.

It is generously supported by the Art & Art History Department at Providence College.
