Ordinary is an exhibition highlighting the ordinary through subject matter and use of materials.
The antithesis of the spectacular, familiar objects bring art down to human scale and into the intimacy of daily life. Marcel Duchamp first championed the use of mass produced, utilitarian objects in his readymade artwork in the early 20th century, and has continued to influence nearly a century of artists that have followed him, each pushing the boundaries of what is considered to be art, and how it could be created.
Decades later, feminist artists continued with these ideas, often taking ordinary objects from the domestic realm as material for their art. These artists highlighted unseen labor, and incorporated their everyday life as rituals for their artwork. Ordinary features eight female artists who work with these concepts in their art and process.
