gallery Works for an Unrealized Film: An exhibition by Anthony Discenza, on view at Et al, etc. at Minnesota Street Project from April 29 — June 3, 2017
Currently on view at Et al. is Works for an Unrealized Film, a new solo exhibition by Anthony Discenza. The exhibition is on view through June 3, 2017.
The exhibition departs from an incident in 2015, in which Discenza was asked by a film production designer to create a collection of works that would be used to portray the work of a fictional artist in a psychological thriller about the art world. Though his proposal for the project was rejected (and ultimately the film was never produced), Discenza uses the current show as an opportunity to realize his original concept: creating an exhibition of appropriated objects that have all been used as props in existing film productions. Playing with the history of the readymade and the notion of aura as a mediator of value, the project also continues Discenza’s interest in implied narrative spaces that must be filled in by the viewer’s imagination. Via Et al.
