Past Exhibit: The Ordinary Expands
Tuesday, November 9th through Sunday, December 12th, 2010.
About the Exhibit
In The Ordinary Expands, artists M. Gert Barkovic, Jessica Braiterman, Brent Crothers, Steven Dobbin, Michelle Hagewood, Huguette Roe, and TRAsh Collective, explore the familiar and everyday through the metamorphosis of mundane materials. By presenting mass- produced, disposable objects in unusual contexts, each artist's work is familiar, yet strange. Their individual ideas and expressions influence their material choices. All the pieces create seductive visual statements, and while some speak of the minimalist and formalist legacy and are purely visceral, others speak of the temporality of art and culture. Regardless of their language, each artist transcends the materials and proves that there is beauty in ordinary simplicity.
