Invitation to Random, a group exhibition of works that explore repurposed materials. The exhibition opens at Trocadero Art Space Footscray and runs from September 25 to October 12.
My work is the parody project The Advertiser’s Art, a collection of magazine ads that reference art. The ads have been torn out of popular magazines and newspapers and placed in cheap frames. They mock the pretensions of advertisers who use clumsy art references. They also indicate common ideas about art, the usual clichés Van Gogh’s ear etc. But some ads are more sophisticated and show wit in using art ideas in a humorous way. I would count this Cubism ad amongst those.
