Morgan Lehman is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by John Salvest. This is his second solo show of found-object based sculpture at the gallery. In his new work, Salvest continues to challenge pre- conceived notions of the purpose and value of common objects in everyday life. Taking various artifacts (matches, coins, pills, cigarette butts, magnets, etc.), Salvest refashions them to be viewed from an entirely different perspective. This re- contextualizing gives an emotional power and saturated purpose to the ordinary and ephemeral.
Reception & Book Signing: April 23, Aperture Gallery

Stylish New Yorkers, college kids, and good residents of Manhattan help this wee robot navigate its way through the park. How can something so simple (a wind-up cardboard box on wheels) make people want to help it out?! More about Kacie Kinzer's Tweenbots project here. [Thanks danah]
