Feb 13–Mar 16
On these dates, enjoy reduced admission ($19 adults; $14 seniors and students) and see Fast Forward and Human Interest. Two floors are closed as we prepare for the 2017 Biennial.
Combining high and low, fine art and handicraft, Joel Otterson has for more than thirty years produced sculptures and decorative arts inspired in equal measure by middle-class American (specifically, Californian) domestic spaces and queer culture. The chandeliers on view in the Biennial are constructed from inexpensive thrift store glassware and modeled after late-nineteenth-century Baccarat “birdcage chandeliers” as well as Marcel Duchamp’s famous Bottle Rack (1914), a reference that brings Otterson’s work into dialogue with the tradition of readymade sculpture. Also on view, a curtain, quilt, and camp tent likewise merge the everyday with the exquisite in a mode that embraces the irony of camp aesthetics (the pun, therefore, intended).
Joel Otterson’s work is on view in the Museum’s fourth floor galleries.
