Repurpose: a Graphic Design Invitational Exhibition

Mar 20th - Apr 18th, 2010 -

"Repurposes" is an exhibition that presents work devoted to reexamining and reengaging convictions or finding new uses for what has been produced. The show proposes the rehabilitation of meanings that have been lost or disfigured instead of crafting new doctrines for how we should regard our world and ourselves; to face the overproduction of material culture and its implications for our self and the environment and how we might employ and transform the abundant objects and imagery that already exists.  The show asks the question, "in a time of historic change and challenge-politically, economically, technologically-how do we remake ourselves?"

 

Opening reception 7 p.m. March 20

JAN. 24 – MARCH 8
The World Outside
CHANGING GALLERY
 
Brooklyn painters Matthew F Fisher and Ryan Schneider address humanity’s complex relationship to nature. They construct images of sun and moon, sea and sky, and plant and animal, using both tranquil acrylic and tempestuous oil. Calling their divergent approaches “post plein air” and sharing an ambition to paint time “unobstructed,” Fisher and Schneider depict nature as an objective reality, a cultural construction, and a subjective feeling.
 
OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, JAN. 23, AT 7 P.M.
