Culture in brief: SMI’s ‘Everyday Objects’
Studio Montclair opens a new exhibition titled “Everyday Objects,” celebrating “found” objects, in its Studio Montclair Gallery, 127 Bloomfield Ave., tomorrow, Nov. 1. The exhibition runs through Saturday, Dec. 7. According to SMI, inanimate objects “carry a history and a set of meanings that we sometimes share collectively and at other times are extremely personal to our individual experiences.”
They add, "The formal history of found-object art can be traced back to the Dada and Surrealist movement of the 1910s-1940s, characterized by the reuse of commercial imagery and appropriation of cultural iconography of the Pop artists, and used more recently by such artists as Carl Andre, Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas, and Willie Cole."
M. Gosser, chief curator and gallery director of the College of Architecture and Design at New Jersey Institute of Technology, curated the show. For more information, visit studiomontclair.org.
