DESCRIPTION

Manufractured
Reception: March 30th, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m

 

Manufractured investigates the “radical appropriation” of consumer goods as the basis material for art- and object-making in visual and material culture.

Increasingly, artists, craftspeople, and designers from around the world are gathering familiar mass-produced goods as their new raw materials, using both pristine products and castoffs to create works that are completely unexpected, while at the same time surprisingly familiar. The result is a collection of pioneering work from a wide range of artists who successfully combine the industrially uniform with the uniquely handmade.
