  • That Was Now

    Nov. 17, 2011 - Feb. 20, 2012

    We often think of art in linear terms, that imagery and iconography evolve over time. We wander through museums and like a slow flip book watch as stiff Gothic imagery swells into the lush representations of the Renaissance and how Impressionism fractures into Cubism. But styles don't always develop as clearly as a flight of stairs. Artists often sample ideas from generations past, incorporating images from another time. Leading to a re-imagining of art history as well as contemporary culture - editing and remixing our visual history through selection and repetition.
