Event Description

Lynda Gammon, John Luna, Tyler Hodgins, Xane St Phillip, Robert Youds and three artists selected by jury. A machine is a tool containing one or more parts that uses energy to perform an intended action. As we are losing our understanding of how machines work or how we can fix them, this subject is both one of nostalgia but also one that allows us to rethink our relationship to the machines around us. From Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times, to Yves Tingey’s self-destructing kinetic machines to Eva Hesse’s idiosyncratic drawings that contain machine-like parts, artists have long fantasized about the possibility of creating imaginary machines. The artists in this exhibition have been invited to create an “imaginary machine” using whatever medium they choose. The results will be surprising, delightful and enigmatic.
