DESCRIPTION

Copy Right/Copy Left is an experimental event by Lordy Rodriuguez where museum-goers are asked to produce an original artwork that has been simplified into easy-to-assemble parts. In the spirit of the artist’s process of appropriating printed maps and patterns to create a new visual vocabulary, participants are asked to view In the Moment, and identify patterns from the exhibition to insert them into the framework of the artist’s drawing. From arranging and copying to cutting and pasting, the exercises raise questions about authenticity, an economy of prints and reproductions, ownership and appropriation in the digital age. Meet at the Information Desk.

 About the Artists Drawing Club:

Each month, this new series invites a local contemporary artist to use the museum as a project platform–drawing inspiration from the institution to direct a unique experience for the visitor. The Artists Drawing Club provides a new lens to see the museum, its collection and the world around us through the perspectives of eight contemporary artists.
