Wyatt Brand’s Fall 2015 Exhibition
On 09, Nov 2015 | In News | By WyattBrand
Wyatt Brand is proud to unveil our latest exhibition from Michael Anthony Garcia: “i, object”.
This exhibition reflects a more playful branch of García’s body of work in which the overriding concept is a further exploration of our relationships with the objects we interact with on a daily basis, most of which are created to conform to our corporeal forms. The objects themselves can act as stand-ins for the space we ourselves occupy, their previous functions becoming mere echoes of their former connotations. The line between objects, owners, and viewers blurred, in vaguely anthropomorphic terms.
