Nora Annual Exhibition
.
On View Now - 20 March, 2021
.

 

In believing that it's our commitment to help share new artists and designers' work, and trusting their abilities to contribute to this city, @ Nora, contemporary design store, uses their platform as purveyors of objects and ideas, and brings the first yearly exhibition indicative of local art and design in 2021.

The works in this show are imagined as statements of anti-manufacturing. They tip their hat to classic forms and play with our understanding of functional objects. Ideas put forward in traditional practices are subverted, deconstructed, brought to current conversations, and stripped from old ones. They are stunt doubles for works they resemble— made to resist what the originals could not, and not unlike cinema, it is noticing the difference that brings forward meaning and understanding.
