An Essay by Rosie Minney

Rosie Minney

writes about Idea Generating Machines

Artist and Fine Art student at Newcastle University, Rosie Minney, writes an essay in response to my recent solo exhibition in Vane, "Idea Generating Machines". In the essay, Minney talks about Marcel Duchamp and Robert Rauschenberg presenting everyday objects as art by altering the spectator’s vision and redefining the cultural context of objects. She then asks "So it is true that you can’t have just anything masquerading as art on the floors of the gallery, and so I wonder what is it that makes Sheyda Porter’s sculptural collages of everyday items a valuable use of gallery space?"
