Los Angeles artist Matt Merkel Hess will lecture on his works featured in the Faux Real exhibition. Hess cleverly recreates everyday containers like buckets, jugs, and milk crates using glazed clay. In doing so, he allows the viewer to reconsider such familiar things as art objects.
Faux Real is a group exhibition (on display in the museum’s main level galleries June 2-September 29, 2013) that features installation artists and sculptors who recreate reality with a twist, using off-beat materials and a keen sense of humor. The results are playful, intriguing, and highly entertaining.
