Extraordinary Ordinary

Cardboard Reimagined

January 27–February 28, 2020

Featuring: Scott Fife, Taro Hattori, Jason Schneider, Ann Weber, and Dag Weiser

Cardboard is everywhere in our lives. It is a cheap material used for storing, packaging and shipping, but it becomes useless once it has done its job… a residual material, to be discarded. Cardboard is perfectly recyclable, at least, but it is also astoundingly “up-cyclable,” as the artists in this exhibition strikingly demonstrate. Using a variety of inventive approaches to crafting forms from cardboard, they elevate this throwaway material from its humble, utilitarian origins, transforming it into extraordinary, sophisticated works of art.
