The Performance of Materiality in works of art extends beyond physical matter and broadly encompasses all relevant information related to the work’s physical existence. An artwork’s visual content coupled with the artist’s personal history, as it pertains to the origin of the work, are all relevant to the aesthetic experience.
 

The artwork’s physicality - aspects which can be sensed and verified by the viewer on a visceral level - is naturally a primary consideration of a work; physicality impacts content and, subsequently, meaning. Secondly, the apparent subject or object matter, and how that dialogues within the narrative of our contemporary culture, are just as relevant.

 

Considerations of materiality can be universally applied, in the aesthetic assessment of diverse contemporary forms that range from traditional, low-tech media to conceptual or ephemeral works.

 

The works featured in “Fine Materiality” create further discourse about how art functions via its materiality, and how the act of making brings forth and informs its ultimate meaning.
