DESCRIPTION

This is a show of sculptures. 

It also hopes to create new homes for animals in shelters. And to raise funds to help protect wild animal species.

Salad will be served on Saturdays starting at 3:00 PM and Mondays starting at 2:15 PM 

Over the past decade, the relationships between culture and those who produce and consume it has changed radically. Art has not been excepted from these shifts. As art has become more commodified, subject to re-performance, pressed into new contexts by curators, and recycled by other artists, conventional notions of objecthood, authorship and ownership have been evolving. Darren Bader (American, b. 1978) works with these expanding boundaries of art’s use and circulation. Often using culture he appropriates from a range of media—film, music, text, digital images and work made by other visual artists—Bader treats such material as “readymades” that he presents democratically within the framework of his exhibitions alongside found objects like fruits, furniture, and sometimes live animals. Working with a lyrical absurdity in the space between sculpture, writing and curating, the artist humorously complicates the hierarchies that underscore the economies of cultural production and reception.
