inveterate: toni collums roberts

The Martha and Robert Fogelman Galleries of Contemporary Art is pleased to present inveterate: toni collums roberts. For this MFA thesis exhibition, Collums Roberts has created a body work lacking the standards of today's visual culture. Spanning both gallery spaces with an installation-based performance involving 8,000 plaster cubes in one, and a video in the other, the exhibition is an attempt at creating a fertile place for boredom to be generated, questioned, or ignored. The combination of these elements creates a space for theories of art and philosophy to merge and morph, examining the possibility that technology's perpetuation of boredom is at the root of contemporary society's darkest fantasies.

Collums Roberts' performance will occur daily throughout the duration of the exhibition.
