Joseph Gross Gallery Presents: Versailles Now!
Featuring works by: Knowledge Bennett, Micah Crandall-Bear, Peter Gronquist, Kip Omolade, Lyle Owerko, Chris Schulz, Victor Solomon, Nathan Wong & Elizabeth Waggett.
A lesson in luxury and mediums, and a nod to the lavish and extravagant display of the palace of Versailles, Versailles Now presents a challenge to commodity culture itself by using tropes, materials, and concepts often associated with wealth, quality, and value, with the collective survey of works confusing and appealing viewers. What is value in a world where we seek the cheapest alternatives? How do we identify ourselves through something more than what we own? This visually stunning exhibition of works seeks to answer these questions and more while working within the realm of consumer culture.
On View: May 19th — June 2nd.
Opening Reception: Friday, May 19th, 2017, 7-10pm
