Event Description

Seager Gray Gallery presents Lucre, a one-person exhibition of masterworks in thread and shredded money by artist Lisa Kokin. The exhibition will run from April 3 to May 1, 2018 with a reception on Saturday, April 7 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. There will be a gallery talk with the artist at 3:00 on Sunday, April 22.  The exhibition is accompanied by a full color catalog with essay by Renny Pritikin, Chief Curator at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco.

Kokin has always been brilliant at combining meticulous process, limited materials (mostly thread, but in this case thread and shredded money) and astute social commentary into works that seem nearly impossible to accomplish. In Lucre (the title alone a pithy reflection on the corruptive power of money), Kokin uses currency that has been shredded acquiring it in bags ordered online from the Bureau of Printing and Engraving.

"I like money in its shredded state because it is stripped of value and power," says Kokin.  "Worthless, it becomes just so much green and white confetti. It is literally not worth the paper it\\\'s printed on." . . . "No one values money in this impotent state. It no longer has the ability to poison relationships, influence elections, create privilege and misery and threaten democracy."

To quote the Renny Pritikin\'s catalog essay, "Kokin is a master who has been making art involving sewing, fabric and the like since well before the turn of the century. Such work requires long hours of both planning and execution, often to the extent that they become meditative, almost trance-inducing disciplines. Lucre has been built exactly in that way. The result is elegant and utterly resolved, deliciously satisfying in its formal completeness."

Fee: $0.00
