“There’s a Price on Your Head”

September 16, 2019

Art professor Melissa Furness has a solo exhibition titled “Oddments,” showing at K Contemporary gallery in Denver from Sept. 7 28, 2019. This body of work depicts objects commonly used within the history of painting in order to critique the traditional Western canon of art. Furness recontextualizes the allusive items as a collected pile, like rubbish, to visually discard as cliché rather than to individually revere.
