The Bogus Boutique: Exhibit by artist David Bogus

Monday, February 12, 2018- March 15, 2018 Multiday event - 31 days

Wilson Hall

UAH Wilson Hall Gallery

The Bogus Boutique is a lifestyle brand featuring unique brightly colored ceramic objects and status symbols. These everyday objects foretell the ironic codification of consumer culture as it embodies our current society. In The Bogus Boutique, high heel shoes, punk rock lock necklaces, anchors, oversized fishing hooks, suitcases, cigarette lighters, and life preservers are outrageously overpriced objects as viable subjects for branding and art. Questioning the notion that ordinary objects can become an "object of art." Bogus encourages a debate about authorship and originality, dissolving the distinction between sanctioned museum pieces and iconic everyday consumed objects.

On view from February 13 through March 15 in the UAH Wilson Hall Gallery.

Opening reception and artist talk will be on February 13 from 4:30pm - 6:30pm.

Gallery hours: 9am - 5pm, Monday through Friday
