When does art become obsession and when does obsession become art? This show will focus on artists that flirt with the line between art and obsession. Art & Obsession will highlight works which are created through obsessive practices and techniques in addition to art that addresses the idea of obsession through form or content. The exhibition opening will be at 6pm on Friday, 3/16 at Forum.
Designer Max Lamb visited the Cranbrook Academy of Art’s Department of 3D Design in the Spring of 2011. He lead students in a workshop, challenging them to produce objects, largely functional in nature, within strict limitations of materials and time. The objects produced through this workshop were on display in Forum Gallery as part of an exhibition titled “Four Sale.”
Selected students from the Cranbrook Academy of Art’s Department of Print Media.
Forum Gallery is pleased to present a selection of new sculptural and two-dimensional works from the department of Print Media at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Maneuvering between levels of dimensionality, materiality and seriality, the Print Media Department describes a site of production richly between the definitions of how objects and images manifest themselves as corollary to the definitions and traditions of printmaking.
