Incidental Monuments: Designing with Discards Opening Reception

Incidental Monuments is an exhibition that highlights artists and art practices that consciously repurpose every day, overproduced materials. Beginning from a student-initiated, data visualization project that calls attention to the volume of non-recyclable, plastic utensils that are discarded on campus each semester; the exhibition recognizes the incredible, formal, individual efforts of artists working within a similar set of concerns. Using the student installation as a thesis, the exhibition brings together artworks that question the way we use, dispose of, and often forget about certain materials on a daily basis.

While the show does not advocate individual responsibility as being greater than that of corporations and industries, it asks its viewers to evaluate their relationship to mass-produced material and examines the campus microcosm as a venue to move the meter on behavior and policy.
