Swept Away: Dust, Ashes, and Dirt in Contemporary Art and Design
Location: Museum Of Art And Design
Dates: February 7 - August 12, 2012
Art made from dust? WTF!? Yeah, you'd be forgiven for thinking that. Swept Away succeeds in selling the odd material as an artistic force. The installations by folks like Zhang Huan, James Croak, and Kim Abeles prove that impossibly beautiful things can be formed from the most unusual sources.
