From My Head to My Toes, to My Teeth to My Nose - Johanna Unzueta Exhibition

Feb 16, 2019 - May 26, 2019 

MSU Broad Art Museum

 

Field Station: Johanna Unzueta is organized by the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University and curated by Carla Acevedo-Yates, Associate Curator.

Johanna Unzueta's works address notions of labor, productivity, and progress. Made using natural materials such as felt and wood, manipulated and combined with recycled objects from old factories, her labor-intensive, handmade constructions emulate industrial architecture, tools, and machinery. Thinking of tools as extensions of the body, Unzueta rereads the technological advances of the Industrial Revolution. She calls our attention to common objects that serve practical purposes, but that we take for granted and rarely notice.
