This catalogue is published on the occasion of the exhibition Look Again, curated by Casey Fremont and Karline Moeller. Focusing on re-appropriation, subversion, and a trompe l’oeil devices employed by a diverse group of international artists, the exhibition was conceived not as an exhaustive survey but rather an editorial selection that juxtaposes established artists with emerging voices.
Through the reconstruction of images referenced from art history or trompe l’oeil devices employed to fool the eye, the artists included in Look Again aim to disrupt the viewer’s expectations and to question the significance of art withdrawn from its original framework. While some artist reinterpret familiar subject matter or reinvent discarded materials, others anachronistically adopt the style of a modern master to purposely mislead the viewer.
The catalogue is fully illustrated an features an essay by New York based art critic and author, Eleanor Heartney.
