Stamps faculty Rebekah Modrak and Nick Tobier present the exhibition “A Day’s Work”, on display March 1 — April 1 at Alfred University School of Art & Design’s Cohen Gallery. The exhibit features distinct but related bodies of work that serve to challenge viewers’ social expectations. “A Day’s Work” opens March 1 from 6 – 8pm, with a closing reception on April 1 from 6 – 8pm.
Rebekah’s installation, Re Made Co., is a multimedia artistic intervention satirizing the brand narrative of a New York City-based company that sells painted axes and a range of “outdoor” consumer products using calculated and false associations with manual labor. Evolving since its launch in July 2013, Re Made Co. works across genres to challenge the values of design practice, and to introduce a critical discourse into passive consumption.
Nick will conduct performances in the gallery and in the community during the month of March. He will present, Marvelous Guests, which lends new working conditions and meanings to several trades by inviting professionals to conduct their business in unusual locations. As a guest. Each encounter will produce its own forms of communication on location. We see the relationship between guest and host as dynamic, and not without friction as each adjusts to the other.
