Description

Come enjoy Declarations, the first exhibition of the Fall at the Marks Art Center.
 
The proposition: if given one simple piece of cardboard to communicate a message to the world, what would that message be?
 
Each artist answers the call in radically different ways: personal poetry, inspirational passages, reflections on aesthetics and history. Using recycled cardboard—a disposable material used for the roadside statements of the unemployed and disenfranchised—each participant produced a personal visual message that transforms this iconography of desperation into a declaration of values, some humorous, some serious, all meaningful. The tactile immediacy of the cardboard is tantalizing, raising questions about social status and our visual environment.
 
Throughout the exhibition Visitors are also invited to add their own “declaration” to the community wall in the exhibition space, with supplies provided.
