Playbol! (Play ball!)
Wednesday September 1 - Wednesday October 6, 2004
Playbol! brings together works from several disciplines around the common theme of baseball and its place within a dynamic cultural melting pot. More than an iconographic pretext, in this instance the sport functions as a matrix that organizes and combines symbols, references, cultural practices, conflicting and modified images, apostrophes to the history of art and multiple formal languages. Baseball bats, balls and caps serve as inspiration for a series of paintings and sculptures, all of which share formal strategies that allow for interpretations that are sometimes complementary and other times contradictory.
