New Ma­te­ri­alisms

The gallery de­scribes this show best: “Ex­plor­ing themes of con­sumer cul­ture, plas­tic, craftivism, ab­sur­dity and spec­ta­cle, Richard­son’s work fea­tures the rad­i­cal re-use of dis­carded plas­tic ma­te­ri­als to cre­ate a max­i­mal­ist, im­mer­sive en­vi­ron­ment.” To Apr 14

Struc­tures and Be­ing Struc­tured Lor­raine Al­bert’s show stud­ies the struc­tures that con­strain the in­sti­tu­tion of art. “The viewer may in­ter­pret this ma­te­ri­al­iza­tion on a spec­trum, from en­ter­tain­ing to con­fronta­tional, and these read­ings will change as more time is spent with the work and in the space,” her artist’s state­ment adds.
