SEPTEMBER 14 - NOVEMBER 24, 2012

 

 

For the last 15 years, artist Conrad Bakker has been working on a series of Untitled Projects that complicate, reflect on and celebrate the life of objects. Bakker creates hand-carved and painted facsimiles of familiar objects, from mid-century modernist furniture to garage-sale collectibles. The artist then inserts these painted, wooden “decoys” into real markets, from eBay auctions and mail-order catalogues to pyramid schemes and spam sales websites. For Untitled Project: Seasonal Economies, Bakker responds to Vermont’s seasonal and local marketplaces. Here, maple sugaring, fall foliage tour packages and vintage Vermont collectibles are considered in relation to other markets, from barter systems to dollar stores. Conrad Bakker has exhibited his work nationally and internationally at Tate Modern (London), Galerie Analix Forever (Geneva), the New Museum of Contemporary Art (New York) and many other venues. Artist Steve Budington guest curates this exhibition.

Exhibition catalogue available mid-October.
