Contingent Process

When: Wednesdays-Fridays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturdays, 12-4 p.m. Continues through July 30 2011

Christopher West presents "Contingent Prcoess." The materials and methods of creation have been expanding rapidly since the 1960’s, constructing works of art that are radically different from those of the past. This show examines a small facet of this expansion with works that incorporate ideas of a contingent process — where artworks are results of circumstances as opposed to traditional aesthetic finesse. Artists Jessica Adams, Kevin Gallagher, Julien Nedelec, and Lauren Zoll have relinquished some aesthetic control during production to instead allow their work to naturally grow from circumstances. Through this blurring of the historical notions of authorship and creation, we will see artworks incorporating the new aesthetics of processes.
