MADISON MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART

Return to Function

Text by Jane Simon, Martha Schwendener, Stephen Fleischman, Ami Barak.

Return to Function surveys contemporary artists who make functional objects that verge on "the designed"--from vehicles to clothes to mobile studio units--which happily confirm that the once-firm line between fine art and the applied arts is indeed dissolving. These artists--Jules De Balincourt, Claire Fontaine, Franšois Curlet, Fabrice Hyber, J. Morgan Puett, Michael Rakowitz, Joe Scanlan, Franck Scurti, Ricardo Miranda Z˙˝iga and others--make objects that are simultaneously critical and practical. By choosing to create objects that meet utilitarian criteria, they show that artworks can be a part of the larger social, political and economic fabric. This volume features an in-depth discussion of seminal artists working in this vein, including Lucy Orta, Andrea Zittel and Jorge Pardo.
