Assembly Line is an artist-led platform by Shane Bradford & guests exploring the notion of the art multiple by using the fact of multiplicity as the inherent driver for editioned art. In other words, we make 3D multiples about multiplicity!
Assembly Line takes its name from Bradford’s semi-namesake Henry FORD and his conveyor belt-style factory method of production, circa 1928. This innovation reverberates with us today in myriad ways, some beneficial, some questionable. As such, AL is a vehicle(!) for an artistic exploration of production and process, as interpreted by exceptional artists to whom such questions are integral.
