Reused & Recycled

Disposability haunts modern life. Questions of who gets to produce waste and where it ends up, are increasingly central to our collective social, political, and artistic imaginations. However, for much of the 20th century, modern art was far more concerned with how to make things new, implicitly sidelining questions about what to do with the leftover material. Nevertheless, the injunction to “make it new” created its own parallel history. From the beginning, modern art was also collage, combines, land art, and much else. It recombined the detritus of everyday life — Picasso’s papier collé, Kurt Schwitter’s Merzbau, Simon Rodia’s Watt’s Tower, to name only a few — and formed a shadowy counterpoint to the imperatives of modern consumption and production.

These works orient themselves around the questions of material, process, and labor. However, by using elements and processes outside the traditional bounds of artistic production, they are not simply concerned with formal methods. Much of the work in this show suggests our reckoning with the ecological and environmental catastrophes of the present and future. One finds works that are melted and dismembered, but also, more hopefully, woven and reassembled.
