Reception: Friday, October 10, 2008 — 8:00pm
Art Snob Solutions, Phase II: The Age of Mechanical Reproduction is an exhibition of ambiguous objects, images, videos and sounds that evoke a love for and a satirizing of both the ambitions of Modern Art History and the DIY ethos of folk and lo-fi indie music. Through the process of remixing, themes and ideas are mashed up to highlight and re-present esoteric information in unconventional ways. This exhibition explores the sort of passion that compels a teenager to pin a shaky hand-rendered Morrissey drawing to his or her wall—except in this case, Morrissey is likely to be substituted with Baldessari.
Mary Ann McTrowe received her MFA from Concordia University in 2001. Daniel Wong received his MFA from the University of Western Ontario, London, in 2006. The two artists united in 2006 to fight the good fight and sing the good song (and occasionally the bad song).
