Art & Reproduction (2018)
For Object Lessons Space’s first ever physical activation, we joined Urban Ventures 11 Street Party with a portable exhibition titled Art & Reproduction. Taking the form of a cork board, the portable exhibition featured a couple of objects that examined how artworks and images have been reproduced, manipulated, cropped and edited.
Through this portable exhibition, we wanted to pose the following questions to our viewers:
We’re free to access artworks through their reproductions, but are our mediated experiences "authentic"?
What makes an experience with an artwork authentic anyway?
Can a reproduced artwork replace the original in our digital age?
The exhibition was accompanied by a short brochure, which can be downloaded below.
Portable Exhibitions are original initiatives by Object Lessons Space. These exhibitions take over small, unconventional spaces and deliver small, yet pithy explorations into a single theme or issue.
