It’s All Monkey Business in James Grashow’s Latest Eye-Catching Exhibition

Photography by Robert Grant.

He’s a sculptor…But his medium is typically corrugated cardboard—he once used it to construct an entire cityscape. But for “James Grashow: The Great Monkey Project,” at Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, Massachusetts, through September 13, he cuts, carves, and bends 4-by-8-foot sheets purchased at his local box-making plant into 80 simian shapes, each approximately 4 feet tall and hung from the ceiling from rope that’s been arranged into horizontal ladderlike rungs. When asked if the humble material he uses is recycled, Grashow says no but that, “Everything is recyclable, including us.”
