Today is Tomorrow
RECEPTION: FEB 25 6-8PM
February 25 – April 2, 2011
In his debut show at Art Palace, Today is Tomorrow, Jim Nolan combines the aesthetics of working class labor and underground music culture with the language of Minimalism to create off-hand and irreverent installations, sculptures and photographs. The stereo speaker stands in for the Minimalist cube in Nolan’s new work “There Was No Encore”, a wall-scaled assembly of outmoded speakers. Nolan mars High Minimalism’s precision through purposefully DIY gestures that ask the viewer to consider discarded cultural artifacts and everyday materials for their formal qualities as well as their cultural content.
