Corin Hewitt presents new installation at Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland
The Hedge is composed of an array of elements that will shift over the course of the exhibition: sculptures nestled between exposed studs; backdrops or "grounds" made with photographs of Hewitt's studio; and vibrantly painted domestic objects, including toast, rubber gloves, and key-shaped flash drives, integrated into both.
CLEVELAND, OH.- Continuing his series of performance-based installations developed over the past five years, Hewitt turns the interiors of the walls of the Museum's Toby Devan Lewis Gallery into an exhibition space.

For his installation at MOCA Cleveland, Hewitt has designed a compressed space inside the gallery walls, allowing him to work in close proximity to viewers while remaining unseen. The Hedge is composed of an array of elements that will shift over the course of the exhibition: sculptures nestled between exposed studs; backdrops or "grounds" made with photographs of Hewitt's studio; and vibrantly painted domestic objects, including toast, rubber gloves, and key-shaped flash drives, integrated into both. Figurative and personal, these elements coalesce in the shallow depth of the walls, accumulating dense layers of material in transformation.

MOCA Cleveland will be producing Hewitt's first comprehensive monograph, published by Mousse in spring 2013. The book will include documentation of The Hedge and six of Hewitt's previous exhibitions, with accompanying texts by David Norr, Tina Kukielski, and Judith Rodenbeck.

On February 22, Hewitt's video work House (2012) will debut in the Gund Commons, providing a deeper look at how the artist considers physical change through time-based media. Following the screening, renowned poets Anselm Berrigan, John Coletti, and Dana Ward will give readings that resonate with The Hedge.

On the exhibition's closing weekend in April, a round table will reflect on The Hedge's unfolding, including Hewitt, Norr, Assistant Curator Rose Bouthillier, and Tina Kukielski, Associate Curator of the 2013 Carnegie International.

Hewitt was born in Burlington, VT in 1971, and lives and works in Richmond, VA. He holds an MFA from Bard College, a BA from Oberlin College, and has studied at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Kunste, Karlsruhe, Germany. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Sculpture and Extended Media at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Solo exhibitions of his work have been held at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Atlanta Contemporary Art Center; Western Bridge, Seattle; and Seattle Art Museum. In 2010 he received a Joan Mitchell Foundation Award and he was a recipient of a Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship for Fine Arts in 2011-2.
