salt 10: Conrad Bakker

Conrad Bakker
Thursday, September 11

Exhibition Preview | 4 pm
Artist and Curator in Conversation | 5 pm
Reception | 6 pm
Opens September 12, 2014

Bakker makes imprecise, to-scale replicas of objects like books, photographs, chairs, and motorcycles out of wood and paint to investigate the creation of value and economic systems. Bakker's salt 10 installation at the UMFA will feature new work from his ongoing Untitled Projects series and will mirror the aesthetics of a library, with objects based in part on books from Spiral Jetty creator Robert Smithson's personal collection.


EXHIBITION SPONSOR: UMFA Friends of Contemporary Art (FoCA)
