"MODELS": Joe Babas Andrea Callard Jonah Susskind Dorian Mckaie Jared Madere
Joe Babas (1945 - 2007) was an artist and inventor whose body of work was auctioned off for charity at 65 Saint Felix Street the year after his suicide. Babas' body was part prototype (memorabilia design for corporate entities, architectural proposals) and part variation (art). Like all bodies, Babas' was held together by the communication between its parts, like a mammal.
For "MODELS" Babas is joined by Dorian Mckaie, Jared Madere, Andrea Callard, and Jonah Susskind, with works that engage, combine, and disrupt the material reality and abstract potential of the model. References, processes, and postures are at once obvious and obscure, as each work simultaneously presents and provokes the modes of production, distribution, and identification it models.
