Sandy de Lissovoy, assistant professor of art at Washington and Lee University, gave an artist’s talk through the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).

Virginia MOCA asked de Lissovoy and other “New Waves 2020” exhibiting artists to share their artistic process, inspiration, works in progress, and more, through a video talk. In the talk, de Lissovoy discussed his series of sculptures based on the shapes of gerrymandered congressional districts explaining, “I think of these objects as liberated fragments. They come out of a long interest of mine in studying shapes, and these are new abstractions from the abstractions of gerrymandered border shapes. They’re objects released from the shapes of gerrymandered voting districts.”
