Art making at its best and most persuasive, is essentially a two-tiered process that begins with a stratagem, a singular idea or concept that derives from the impulse to create work that pushes the boundaries of thought. The materials are employed in the service of the concept, extending that thought even further outward. This process or conceptualization also involves the element of simultaneity wherein the work is realized within a physical space, which then becomes yet another element influencing the way the work is seen, received and ultimately talked about. Thus, the “making” of any conceptually based work is ongoing, constantly active and activated.  In the Making includes contributions by Noah Davis, Michael Dopp, Gregory Michael Hernandez, India Lawrence, Simone Leigh & Chitra Ganesh, Dashiell Manley, Daniel Joseph Martinez, Aspen Mays,Kori Newkirk, Kour Pour, Fran Siegel and Natasha Wheat.
