Another Man's Treasure 

Nathan Stromberg  May 2nd to May 27 2017

Why do we assign memory and meaning to consumer objects of metal and plastic?


How is it that we experience the past through relics and what will the visual culture of the present say to those in the future?
 


These glimpses of the every- day, such as the shape of a chrome bumper and the stylized design of kitchen objects and period fashion, remain connections to real people through shared memory and speak to a collective national identity. In many ways they are modern icons.
The process of making archival images into re-contextualized artworks becomes a means to explore the past and its implications for the present.

The action of slowly remaking photographic source material into an artwork compels the viewer to reconsider what is depicted and search for its inherent meaning. The iconic object is given new life in a new context to comment on the ever changing American identity.

You can see Nathan's process in creating one of these pieces in a video here.

Zoetic: Our Cumulative Legacy - January 2017

Zoetic: Our Cumulative Legacy - January 2017

Zoetic: adjective zo-et-ic. Of or relating to life, Awake, Conscience, Viable, being animatedly existent

The Women's Art Resource of Minnesota (WARM) invites you to join us at the Robbin Gallery for our newest exhibit-Zoetic: Our Cumulative Legacy. The artists involved in this project were asked to respond to the last election. What has been brought to life over the course of this election? What has been awakened? How is it affecting art and the creative process? What is now in our consciousness? And what will we do about it? How will we be animatedly existent? 

Zoetic-Our Cumulative Legacy runs from January 5th through the 28th at the Robbin Gallery Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 8:30 and Fridays and Saturdays from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.  Artist reception held on Thursday, January 12th 5:30 to 8:30.  

In addition to the exhibit, on January 20th at 6:30 pm, a panel of community leaders will join us at the Robbin Gallery for a discussion titled “The Trump Trigger” about the political climate and how artists can come together to make a difference.  What positive impact can occur through art and open communication? 

WARM’s mission is to empower and support all feminist artists by honoring the legacy of the past and by building a viable future. WARM, established in 1973 by a group of women artists who found themselves underrepresented in the art world - in gallery exhibitions, as professors in academia, in art history books. WARM holds as its primary mission to empower and support all feminist artists by honoring the legacy of the past and by building a viable future. Created as a cooperative, WARM members support one another in order to bring women to the forefront of their local community.

The WARM Mentor Program, founded in 1982, is a supportive resource that pairs emerging and professional women artists for two years. WARM also provides the WARM Mentor Intensive Program, a goal or project based program open to all artists seeking a one-on-one mentorship for a period lasting one to three months.
