The Festival of Appropriation

Opening Reception: Friday, November 2, 7 pm–12 midnight Free

Exhibition: November 2–30

The Dadaists did it. Warhol did it. Artists from Negativland to Kanye West do it. Appropriation is an artistic practice in which a previously existing form, image, or sound is reused. The creative effort results in a strangely familiar, yet altogether new creation. The Festival of Appropriation, curated by Some Assembly Required’s Jonathan Nelson and l’etoile magazine’s Kate Iverson, features works drawn from and defined by the inspired selection and manipulation of found materials.
