First Sculpture: Handaxe to Figure Stone (January 27-April 29, 2018)
January 27- April 29, 2018

First Sculpture: Handaxe to Figure Stone will be January 27-A pril 29, 2018 in Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora Street, Dallas, TX at 11am-5pm.

Event Description
First Sculpture: Handaxe to Figure Stone is the first museum ex hibition to present ancient handaxes and figure stones as works of art. Traditionally understo od as the longest-used tool in human history, the handaxe is equally fascinating for its non-u tilitarian, aesthetic qualities. First Sculpture will present these objects as evidence of the  earliest forms of artistic intention, highlighting the aesthetic qualities of each stone and  providing crucial historical and scientific information to give the viewer a deeper understand ing of human history, as well as an enriched appreciation for humankind's early ability to scu lpt beautiful objects. Whether carved from visually interesting stones or rendered at unusual  sizes that would inhibit use of the object as a tool, a case can be made for the handaxe as th e first sculpture our prehistoric ancestors conceived. First Sculpture: Handaxe to Figure Ston e is the product of a unique curatorial collaboration between Los Angeles-based artist Tony Be rlant and anthropologist Dr. Thomas Wynn, Distinguished Professor at the University of Colorad o, Colorado Springs. The exhibition will be accompanied by an illustrated, scholarly catalogue  published by the Nasher, with a central essay co-written by exhibition curators Berlant and W ynn, as well as a preface by renowned American scientist, Jared Diamond.
