Copy Right/Copy Left is an experimental event by Lordy
Rodriuguez where museum-goers are asked to produce and reproduce an original artwork
that has been simplified into easy-to-assemble parts. In a similar spirit to
the artist’s process of appropriating printed maps and patterns to create a new
visual vocabulary, participants are asked to view In the Moment, locate and excerpt visual patterns from the
exhibition and then insert these patterns into the framework of the artist’s
drawing. From arranging, to copying, to cutting and pasting, the series of
exercises raises questions about authenticity, the economy of prints and
reproductions, ownership and the strategy of appropriation in the digital age.
About The Artists Drawing Club
Each month, this new series invites a local contemporary artist to use the museum as a project platform, drawing inspiration from the institution, to direct a unique experience for the visitor. The Artists Drawing Club provides a new lens to see the museum, its collection, and the world around us through the perspectives of eight contemporary artists.
