Serial explores the significance of the series in contemporary artistic practice. Whether as process, narrative, repetition, or correspondence, the series provides broad parameters for reading a work and its context. Beyond singular artistic statements, and established within a network of aesthetic and conceptual references, the meaning of a work becomes contingent and dynamic. Featuring new acquisitions and works from McClelland’s permanent collection, this exhibition explores the fluid relations between part and whole, process and product.
