Brigit Ryan Sans PellegrinoOpening: Wednesday 2 July, 6-8pm Dates: 2-19 July 2014
This exhibition is concerned with the slippage of value – both cultural and monetary value – in beautiful objects. It is a reassessment of the way beauty functions in contemporary art, often reduced to a sideways look, mistrusted, an addendum. The work looks at the correlations between interior and home ware design and traditionally artistic ideas of beauty, and the sources of the perception of high and low cultural products.
