Luxury Goods is a group show curated by Beth Rudin DeWoody that interrogates the obsessive visuality of high-end commodities, consumer culture, and lifestyle both public and private. By recreating high-end retail products and environments by hand, these artists’ works force our reconsideration of value and such purpose of items in a way that isn’t likely to happen when browsing the real thing. What are we really paying for: the product, the packaging, the label indulging in a little retail therapy? Come explore. Try on works by Jane Benson, Sandra Bermudez, Libby Black, Brian Burkhardt, John Findysz, Sylvie Fleury, Matthew Day Jackson, MHolland, Marilyn Minter, Takashi Murakami, Carl Pascuzzi, Tom Sachs, Jonathan Seliger, Vadis Turner, Hank Willis Thomas, and Mark Wagner.
