Lost In the Supermarket

SIGN/AGE: Lost in the Supermarket
November 21 – December 19, 2008
Opening reception: Thursday, November 20, 6-8PM

Opening this week is the second in a three part SIGN/AGE series. Assembling works by artists from the Post-War period to the present, these exhibitions mine ideas and images from the rich arenas of advertising and consumerism. Since the Fifties, signs have become extremely complex, functioning not just to fulfill needs but to create them. Signs are designed to sell, and people are lined up to buy, because without our products who are we? Lost in the Supermarket includes works by artists that are in direct conversation with our consumer-based culture, taking on the subject from all angles.
