    Everyday Things: Contemporary Works from the Collection

    Presented by at RISD Museum of Art

    April 13, 2012 - February 24, 2013


    Everyday Things:  Contemporary Works from the Collection

    Everyday Things brings together contemporary works from the collection that depict commonplace objects and imagery, utilize everyday elements in their construction (teabags, fluorescent lights, metal pipes, a bowling ball), or serve as functional artist-made objects, including benches, chairs, and light fixtures. With roots in Pop Art, Photorealism, and design, artists in the exhibition use non-traditional materials and subject matter to transform, repurpose, and represent aspects of everyday life.

    The exhibition features 32 works—including sculpture, painting, and prints—from realist paintings from the 1960s and 1970s (Don Eddy, Janet Fish, John Baeder, and Jack Beal), mixed-media works from the 1980s to 2000s (Tania Bruguera, Mike Kelley, Pepón Osorio, Carrie Mae Weems, and B. Wurtz), and recent acquisitions to the collection (Leidy Churchman, Jim Drain, Rob Pruitt, and Jessica Stockholder).
