Cars in Art II

IP Casino Resort Spa Exhibitions Gallery

August 22 – October 21, 2017

 

Cars in Art II explores artistic response to the automobile, which has transformed life in the 20th century more significantly than any other single factor, irrevocably changing the appearance of our environment and our experience of it.  While some artists focus on images of the car itself, inspired by its alluring modernity or its status as an icon or expression of personal identity, others create art work from car parts such as scrap metal and tires.  Later artists comment on the automobile’s ubiquitous presence in the landscape, seen in the roadside environment, the phenomenon of the road trip, and ultimately the damage caused to our environment.  The photographers, painters, and sculptors included in this exhibition examine an aspect of our lives that is usually taken for granted.

 

This exhibition is funded by the Mississippi Arts Commission, a state agency and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency
