Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts

Joshua Short

January 13–April 8, 2016

Joshua’s work blurs the line between audience, artwork and performer, inviting the viewer to complete the art— Much like the all american spectacle of pro-wrestling, the audience is part of the performance. The action of entering into the art work as a participant generates a more authentic experience by suspending the social filters that we carry into the everyday life. Short uses cultural detritus as a point of departure. The inherited meanings found within caste off objects combined with his artistic sensibilities creates a altered space that frames contemporary American Mythologies and Rituals.
