The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) and Art + Practice (A+P) announced today a presentation of a traveling solo exhibition Thaddeus Mosley: Forest at A+P’s exhibition space in Leimert Park. This show originated at the BMA and will travel to the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, Texas following its presentation at A+P. Thaddeus Mosley: Forest represents the artist’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles. The work will be on view September 17, 2022–January 21, 2023. “Art + Practice is delighted to be included in the national tour of Thaddeus Mosley’s exhibition Forest. This presentation is our sixth collaboration with the Baltimore Museum of Art,” said A+P Director Sophia Belsheim. “A+P celebrates abstraction in its many forms. Mosley’s approach to abstract sculpture inspired by the natural world will expand our visitors’ notions of what contemporary art can be.” Thaddeus Mosley: Forest will feature five recent large-scale walnut sculptures centered in A+P’s front gallery, offering visitors the unique opportunity to circumnavigate the artworks in their entirety in the space. The sculptures, which are crafted from fallen trees gathered near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, represent the artist’s sustained creation of artworks that incorporate masterful woodworking techniques, such as carving, chiseling, and joinery. Mosley was nicknamed “the forest” by late abstract painter Sam Gilliam, who noted he is the “keeper of old trees, round trees, big trees, heavy trees.”
