Claes Oldenburg's "Raygun" in progress


Collaborative exhibition with students at Washington State University Pullman, Washington
February 25 - March 22, 2010

Who is really at the center of the artworld?

Does the aura of famous artworks still exist when remade by others?

What happens when young art students are tasked with refabricating famous artworks in the collection of New York’s Museum of Modern Art -- works they have never seen in person?

Made over the period of several weeks by myself and and dozens of WSU Pullman art students, this exhibition consists of fifty re-fabricated artworks “curated” from the permanent collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art. A fully handmade show, notMoMA attempts to bridge a gap in students' understandings of "high art" and invites them to access the works via their own do-it-yourself collective vision.

Whether considered copies, translations, or even mis-translations, all resulting works are unique expressions in their own right. As an illicit travelling exhibition “borrowed” from their collection, notMoMA creates a dialogue between WSU’s art department and an inaccessible, perhaps reluctant art institution located on the other side of the country.

All works (except for two) were made to actual size, using readily accessible and affordable/scavenged materials
. A final catalog of the collection is scheduled to be produced. The gallery is located on the very eastern edge of Washington State, bordering Idaho and five hours from Seattle. With a population of 25,000, Pullman is located in farming country and home to the University and the National Lentil Festival.

Thank you to WSU Pullman’s Art Department, faculty, and student body. Special thanks to Nik Meisel for facilitation and extending the invitation to make this exhibition possible. And my gratitude to the student participants who contributed their time and effort towards the show:
