Featuring works by

Richard Artschwager, John Baldessari, Tara Donovan, Ellsworth Kelly, Annette Lemieux, Robert Rauschenberg, and Haim Steinbach

The verb “inflect” means to change the form (of a word) to express a particular grammatical function or attribute (typically tense, mood, person, number and/or gender).  Materials and objects come with a physicality and to use the word ‘inflect’ in the context of an artist’s actions is inaccurate.  However, the artists in this exhibition all act upon and with materials in ways that engage the issue of inflection, as well as the issue of inaccuracy.  Each artist uses the idea of juxtaposition, whether in form, source or scale in order to change the initial reading towards a more dynamic comprehension of function, history or legibility where finite definitions are eliminated and the opportunities for exploration multiply.
