“Through the Lens: Found Object/Readymade”
Saturday, January 21st from 8pm-10pm
Through the Lens: Found Object/Readymade curated by UT Dallas photography and aesthetic studies professor Marilyn Waligore and will feature artists
Susi Brister, Francesca Brunetti, Rachel Cox, Shannon Duncan, Paho Mann, and Kristy Peet.
Guided by Surrealist and Dada practices of the 20th century, contemporary artists use photography and video to document two categories of objects: the found object and the readymade. The designation of the readymade upsets the mass-produced object’s functionality: engaging in play while disrupting work; incorporating humor; challenging the definition of art by presenting works that are ready-to-go — chosen and then recontextualized. Meanwhile, the identification of the found object connects to the unconscious, often tapping the historical context of a previous era, the supposed recollections of a previous owner, which informs the current viewer’s awareness. These actions address the concept of authorship, the definition of art, and the place of the object in commodity culture. The use of photography and video in contemporary art to re-present the object frames it a second time, echoing the relationship between selection and presentation of the object and image.
Events during the run of the exhibition will include two panel discussions with the artists.
