From the catalog (link to catalog):
Traces is – first and foremost – about process. The exhibition offers a glimpse of what it takes to make a work of art, and how artists engage in long, varied, and often difficult processes of creation, revision, and rejection. The artists involved have provided a glimpse of the unrewarded material and thought that is generated and discarded before a final work reaches the public. Traces attempts to recover and champion a small sampling of this typically hidden system. We hope that it can aid viewers in understanding the creations that they encounter and artists to recognize and celebrate the very real work that they do in preparation for every finished piece.
