As our culture relocates into digital realms, numerous artists have returned to a studio practice grounded in “doing” and “making.” Simulacrum unites the work of artists whose making freely borrows from the worlds of ethnographic and material culture, folk art, fashion, hobby crafts, DIY, hyper-realism and the shelves of Home Depot. From obsessively detailed replication to faithful and intentional distortion, the exhibition addresses re-creation as an act of adoration and commentary. Bitterly or lovingly (and often both), all these artists remake small parts of the world in order to excavate the layers of meaning within them.
