Santa Monica Museum of Art presents Michael Queenland Rudy’s Ramp of Remainders

Santa Monica Museum of Art presents Michael Queenland Rudy’s Ramp of Remainders, an exhibition on view September 15 – December 22, 2012.

Rudy’s Ramp of Remainders is a new sculptural installation by conceptual artist Michael Queenland. Rudy’s Ramp of Remainders was inspired by Rudis Resterampe—which roughly translates to “Rudy’s Pile of Leftovers”—a German discount store filled with surplus scraps of textile and discarded cultural items that Queenland discovered during his 2009 fellowship at the American Academy in Berlin. Queenland’s installation transforms various materials into “ramps”—loosely grouped remainders and offcuts of objects. These “ramps” reveal how commonplace material and cultural items are reshaped and redefined through Queenland’s artistic intervention. – www.smmoa.org
