Opening Reception: Time and Materialsstuartj2015-05-08T11:23:14-04:00
Time and Materials is a formula that helps one determine the value of one’s labor: it is the cost of the materials and equipment required, plus a rate multiplied by the time it takes to complete the job. While the Time and Materials equation is a way to arrive a specific quantitative value, this project presents artists whose work puts the variables of this equation into play. The exhibition examines the work of six South Florida artists who mix a language of drawing with labor-intensive processes that deconstruct, conflate, and transform ideas about both labor and drawing, and who propose new models through which we may consider the value of one’s labor.
The show will feature the following artists: Nathalie Alfonso, AA.CM.FG, Ernesto Oroza, Frances Trombly, Odalis Valdivieso, and Agustina Woodgate.
