WasteDiversions Preview: Call me on the line

"Phone Man" (2012) by Sabu. Assemblage. Exhibited at MFTA Gallery for "WasteDiversions" through October 4, 2012.

In the words of Louis Aragon, “the real debris of human life,” are assembled, transformed, and on view at galleries and museums across the city: A couple of Dan Flavin’s brilliant fluorescent lightbulb constructions–and his preparatory sketches on milk cartons and cigarette packaging–are on view at the Morgan Library, early collage from Ronald Lauder’s collection is at Neue Galerie, and perhaps most spectacularly, the ramps of the Guggenheim are lined with the extraordinary sculpture (and collage) of John Chamberlain.

MFTA is pleased to join the fray with WasteDiversions: Sculpture and Collage from New York’s Waste Stream, an exhibition of new work by artists from MFTA recipients Culture Push and Vaudeville Park, as well as participants in Friends of MFTA’s open studio program.

Throughout next week, we’ll offer sneak previews of the exhibition which will be on view starting Thursday, March 29 at MFTA Gallery.

Please join us at MFTA for the opening reception Thursday, March 29, 6-9 pm, featuring a performance by Ian M. Colletti of Vaudeville Park.

This reception is free and open to the public. Guests may RSVP here.
