Circulate, Exchange: Nugget & Gravy

September 22–October 6, 2011
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 22, 5–8pm

The exhibition Circulate, Exchange: Nugget & Gravy features the work of 17 artists from Southern California MFA programs. The works in this show manifest themselves as commodity fetish, exchange, currency, labor, relational sociability, and sharing. In the context of this show, the marketplace is a medium, a moment of reaction, a place of negotiation, and a thing to ignore.

Curated by UCLA Department of Art graduate students Mathiew Greenfield and Christine Wang
