Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts (BLCA) is pleased to present a multi-media art exhibition inspired by a topic that has permeated every aspect of our lives especially in recent times: money. “Medium of Exchange: the Art of Cash,” will feature ten Twin Cities artist-provocateurs who have applied their considerable skills to interpret ideas of money both conceptual and literal. Area artist John Schuerman curated the show. The public is cordially invited to visit the gallery during the run of the exhibition, meet the artists at the opening reception and participate in a panel discussion about money and art. All programs are free.
“The subject matter offers ample opportunity for artists to explore both the liberating as well as the controlling aspects of currency,” said curator Schuerman. “The worldwide financial crisis and the impact of the recession on all of us as individuals makes for perfect timing for a show like this.” he continued. “We all regularly think about it. We hope this show will bring some fresh perspectives to the dialogue.”
In this show the artists address aspects of money including the recent recession and excessive national debt, money’s connection to power, beauty, and personal freedom, the commonwealth, inequity, and the simple iconography of money.
While there is much to mine in terms of conceptual aspects of money, the physical properties of the thing: paper and metal currency, plastic cards, handwritten checks and the machines that deliver and hold it are sometimes taken for granted. The artists, through painting, drawing, installation, print-making, photography and sculpture also play with notions of the material nature of the thing that consumers use in exchange for goods and services on a daily basis. John Ilg uses the image of a Rubik’s Cube to portray the elusive and frustrating process of searching for a job, Alexa Horochowski references famed French artist Yves Klein with her bed of gold, Rob McBroom creates his own wild currency, and Eric Lunde finds the ATM a source of more than crisp bills. Caitlin Karolczak, David Bartley, Rachel Breen, Pete Driessen, Karen Searle and Beth Parkhill contribute their own evocative and surprising interpretations of money.
