Index presents: ART CYCLE! – An exhibition of bicycle inspired art.
IAC is revisiting one of our favorite subjects, and hopefully yours BICYCLES!
Marcel Duchamp created his most famous “Readymade” Bicycle Wheel in 1913. Over the last century the influence of the bicycle on art is as diverse and far reaching as the two wheel machine itself. Bikes have been used as kinetic sculptures, muses for painters and photographers, and as a blank canvas for artists and innovators alike. This exhibition, once again, hopes to capture the spirit of the bicycle, and its place in contemporary art.
Featuring "Voyage on Bike" by Natalie McKeever, a rotoscope-like animation that illustrates the hyperactive, transient mind of an ordinary bike traveler.
March 10 through April 1, 2012
Reception: Saturday, March 10, 7 to 11pm
