In 1964, Jasper Johns wrote himself a note: “Take an object. Do something to it. Do something else to it.” Since then, this set of instructions has referred to artwork that uses everyday objects and other non-fine art materials and describes the revolutionary approaches to art-making that developed from the early 20th century to the late 1950’s,1960’s, and beyond. For this exhibit, artists are invited to submit work in any medium and in any genre including abstract. However, an object must be used as the primary subject and inspiration of the work.
This exhibition is the fourth in SMI’s Community Partnership Exhibition Program created by cofounder and past president Virginia S. Block. The partnership aims to reach out to other nonprofit organizations each year to create a collaborative exhibition designed to inspire our members, create new connections, and reach new audiences. This year SMI’s Community Partner is the Montclair Art Museum (MAM). As a collaboration, SMI and MAM will be mounting concurrent object-inspired exhibitions. Studio Montclair’s exhibit will be displayed in our gallery and in the Museum’s Vance Wall Art Education Center arcades. Our selection team will determine the location of all artworks.
