Everything is a Remix

February 24 – April 17, 2015
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 28, 2015

“I invented nothing new. I simply assembled the discoveries of other men behind whom were centuries of work.” Henry Ford

An unconfirmed rumor, perpetuated by Steve Jobs, claims that Pablo Picasso once said, ‘good artists copy; great artists steal’. In contemporary art we know it as appropriation; to adopt, borrow, recycle, or sample from the anthology of visual culture. Though many artists push the boundaries of creative and intellectual property, we are compelled to wonder, is pure originality an impossible cause? And if so, in derivative is there not also homage? As film-maker, Kirby Ferguson, explores in ‘Everything is a Remix’ [everythingisaremix.info/watch-the-series/], all evolution is based on three things: copy, transform, and combine. In this show artists are invited to remix their own artistic influences, be it that of another artist, a writer, musician, film-maker, or a specific piece of their work, and offer up an homage to the creativity they have inspired.
