Ry Rocklen doctors and assembles society’s leftovers from streets, dumps, and thrift stores into playful readymades with calculated cultural connotations. Rocklen discusses his work in our Multiple Edition series.
Multiple Edition is conceived as a platform for discussion and experimentation. Each emerging artist in the series is commissioned to create 200 multiples that will be given away to the public—free of charge—at the event. This season’s programs feature artists exhibiting in the 2008 Whitney Biennial.
