    San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art
    560 S. 1st Street, San Jose, CA 95113

    Members Preview: 1 - 2 PM
    Public Reception: 2 - 4 PM

    Detritus explores the leftover scraps and byproducts of the art-making process that artists do not discard for a number of compelling reasons. What is the significance of a wall marked by an accumulation of paint and fingerprints spanning a lifetime of studio work? What does a jar full of eraser shavings reveal about the studio practice of an artist who draws? Taking inspiration from the field of forensics, this exhibition examines the detritus from a multitude of Bay Area artists’ studios in order to shift the focus from art as commodity to the core value of art making.

    Process, materiality, concept, engagement, and marketability are among the metrics by which we measure the value of art. Sometimes the focus is so guided by one or more of these metrics that the resulting artwork serves as a document of the pursuit of these attributes. Hidden from public view, residual evidence of art production does not hold ostensible market value, despite the high value artists often assign to the processes through which they make their work.

    This exhibition delves into this valuation. By organizing and featuring no works of art whatsoever, we hope to inspire both viewers and participating artists alike to consider their own valuation system when seeing and thinking about art. By mining storage boxes and materials hiding in plain sight, we gain insight into the unique and similar behaviors of artists who archive the evidence of their work. And through the examination of the production, “waste” gathered from more than 100 exhibiting artists, we are offered a glimpse into the time and labor spent in producing their work.

    Kevin B. Chen, Lisa Ellsworth, and Lordy Rodriguez, Guest Curators.

    Detritus is supported by a generous grant from the Applied Materials Foundation.

    September 23rd - November 4th, 2016
    Opening September 23rd from 7 to 9pm

    Curated by: Mel Prest and Rob de Oude

    Taking a two-pronged approach toward the use of paper, this exhibition brings together works that are composed of re-purposed materials, applied in a rhythmic and serial manner. On one hand the works share the choice of materials and on the other hand introduces a shared esthetic. In transforming the properties of the material the artists are employing a sculptural and/or reductive approach to the possibilities of working with paper.

    By cutting, folding, weaving, bending, collage-ing and sewing these artists explore the diverse properties and applications of paper while moving away from utilizing it’s illusionistic aspects. The manifold possibilities of paper, combined with its humble nature, make it the preferred material for a democratic and direct approach as an artist medium.
