Transformers: Re-contextualizing Our Material Culture
September 17 - December 17, 2016
Contemporary artists Jodie Mack, Garry Noland, Julie Peppito and Gerry Trilling regard material culture as raw material. They use it to create artwork of a high order, informed by its fraught, untidy, intimate origins - paintings, sculptures, films, and tapestries in which the ordinary stuff of our lives becomes splendid and strange.
This exhibition is curated by contemporary artist China Marks and presented in conjunction with Radiant Messenger: Drawings by China Marks on view at the Foosaner Art Museum (October 22, 2016 – January 8, 2017).
