Artwork Comprised of Multiple Parts Showcased in Upcoming Racine Art Museum Exhibition
Racine, WI April 19, 2021
Open June 2, 2021 through February 12, 2022 at the Racine Art Museum (RAM), Component Parts: Artworks Made of Multiple Elements features works from the museum’s permanent collection that are comprised of multiple parts—whether they be a single complex object or a series of several pieces unified as one work.
Artworks made of multiple elements are not new to the modern era but contemporary artists have pushed their direction and visual potential. Through conceptual, metaphorical, and experimental lenses, artists literally make one object, or one ultimate work, out of many pieces. Component Parts features a wide range of media and approaches—both two and three-dimensional—that expand this conversation.
The works in this exhibition are united by conceptual choices in presentation yet reflect a variety of perspectives and subject matter—from cultural, historical, and domestic issues to material and formal creative investigations.
