Exhibition: October 16- November 20, 2010
Receptions: Saturday October 16, 2010, 6-9 pm and Sunday, October 17, 1-5 pm
Arena 1 Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of F•UTILITY: ABSURD ACTS OF RADICAL INTELLIGENCE, a group exhibition of work by artists from around the country who aim to redefine ideas of progress and efficiency. Our society often judges the pursuit of the artist as frivolous or decadent, one lacking the pragmatic values associated with a meaningful endeavor. Things of consequence are linked to direct agency, often aiming for an object with a solid logical conclusion or purpose. The F•Utility artists are acknowledging this situation and embracing their doubts about the efficacy of art making.
