Fuse Works: Multiples & Editions

Fuse Works: Multiples & Editions Fuse Works: Multiples and Editions Fuse Works is an independent program dedicated to presenting artists who approach the editioned work as a field of artistic discourse and inquiry rather than simple mass marketing.

Fuse Works has assembled an extensive catalog of multiples and editions representing a diverse group of artists and a wide range of approaches.

Mission: Fuse Works exhibits and promotes multiples and editions by artists who approach the editioned artwork as a field of artistic discourse and inquiry itself, rather than simply a means of massproducing works originating from other media. Many Fuse Works artists explore what, if anything, distinguishes art objects from commodities that can be bought, sold and resold. A few deal with the design and/or fiat value of money itself. And some go so far as to disguise the "status" of their work, seeking to pass their subversive objects into the unsuspecting hands of non-art consumers. At the same time many of these artists are keenly aware of the potential for their objects to gradually evolve into valued art market commodities, nullifying any populist aims they might have intended. While others admit to being eager for this metamorphosis to take place. Fuse Works represents a platform for artists who think critically about the place of art in contemporary culture and the place of contemporary culture in art. Fuse Works began in January 2007 as the Multiples and Editions program at the Front Room Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where the inaugural exhibition showcased editioned works by more than 30 artists. The program has since become an independent endeavor but maintains a virtual storefront online (http://www.fuse-works.com).

Announcing a new book by Rebecca Horne...

Pseudologia refers to the rare phenomenon 'pseudologia fantastica', in which fantasies and falsehoods are represented as real occurrences. The title mimics the role of the artist, who lives part of the time in an alternate reality; listening to objects, mining shapes, constructing and deconstructing images and coaxing them to give up their secrets.

Twins paradox – The case of Marcel Duchamp polymeric multiples | Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage

"...conservators and curators...are investigating two identical miniature reproductions of Marcel Duchamp’s "The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even" from his Boîtes-en-valise that are printed and painted on polymer substrates. These objects will be analyzed by a multidisciplinary team using 3D scanning, computer modeling, and chemical analysis in order to understand why one version is significantly deformed and the other not."

It is tempting to conjecture that the difference is the result of a Duchampian prank, but it is probably just a case of lousy storage.

November 3, 2015The aging behavior and its resulting effect on the appearance of some modern works of art are sometimes more mysterious for scientists to understand than objects which are hundreds of years old, especially when they are made with modern polymers. In collaboration with conservators an...
