An Idea of One's Own


PRESS RELEASE: An Idea of One's Own, Sep 25 - Oct 31, 2018

This exhibition presents recent work by seven contemporary women artists, each working in various media, and it extends from our Gold Coast studio into our booth at EXPO CHICAGO.  For us, art that is postconceptual, as opposed to the classically conceptual work of the 1960s and 1970s which was defined in the writings of artists like Sol LeWitt and Joseph Kosuth.  That art, innovative and original at the time and controversial even today, was based on the proposition that art did not need to be fabricated in order to exist.  The postconceptual works in An Idea of One’s Own each have a message, but it is a message that the artist has chosen to deliver through the presence of a physical object, and is thus capable of transcending the immediate present.
