(RE)PURPOSE presents the work of 22 artists who address diverse critical and socio-political questions working through a wide-ranging vocabulary of formal languages and media. While a remarkably diverse group, shared ideas and intellectually collaborative spirit unite their practices. Within their work, examples abound of reusing found materials, whether straight objects or conceptual material, through purposeful investigations based on social, political, historical, formal, and gendered questions. The determination to contend with the pressing questions and issues before them distinguishes this work; for this group of artists, the question of making art that is “with broader purpose” is a palpable aspiration.
