Fugitive: an Installation by Ian McMahon

- Location: Fosdick-Nelson Gallery
(7:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
Fugitive, an installation by Ian McMahon, will open October 28th at the Fosdick-Nelson Gallery on the Alfred University campus, with a reception from 7-9pm. The artist will give a gallery talk on Wednesday, November 16th at noon; the exhibition will run through December 1, 2016. Events are free and open to the public.

The billowing forms of Ian McMahon’s monumental installation Fugitive, are cast on-site in plaster. Their towering, bone white walls are impossibly thin, and appear to defy the physical limitations of the material. Moving around the immense yet delicate piece one treads lightly as not to disturb these structures - some reaching as high as 12 feet - that swell and press against the metal-bar fencing around the perimeter. The plaster forms have a soft wrinkled surface that resembles skin further heightening the viewer’s awareness of their own body while circumnavigating the work. Constructed on-site, and later destroyed at the close of the exhibition, Fugitive, as the title implies, is a contemporary momenti mori. We marvel at the artist’s ambition yet lament the short life span of the work. Thus reminding us of the ephemeral nature of art and life.

Ian McMahon received a BFA in Ceramic Art from Alfred University and an MFA in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University. He is the recipient of Fellowships from the Virginia A. Groot Foundation (2016) and the New York Foundation for the Arts (2014) and he was awarded artist residencies at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, NE (2013) and at Sculpture Space in Utica, NY (2016). His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including: Crane Arts (Philadelphia), Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute (Jingdezhen, China), The Pacific North West College of Art (Portland), Pierogi Boiler Room (New York), G-Fine Arts (Washington), Bemis Center for Contemporary Art (Omaha), Suyama Space (Seattle), and T&H Gallery (Boston) among others. In 2013 McMahon co-established The Belfry with Ashley Lyon, an artist-run exhibition venue in Hornell, NY.

Fugitive was curated by Sharon McConnell, Director of the Fosdick-Nelson Gallery. The gallery is open 11am-4pm on weekdays and 1-3pm on weekends. The gallery is closed during University holidays. For more information, visit the gallery website at: or contact Sharon McConnell at
