'No lumps, thank you' is a humorous and poignant photographic collection of playful brassieres, created from a wide and wild variety of common objects. The aim is to support women fighting breast cancer, highlighting this serious issue while raising awareness.
Plains Art Museum is pleased to showcase the exhibit No Lumps, Thank You: A Bra Anthologie, works by Meg Spielman Peldo, October 19, 2012 – January 31, 2013. No Lumps is a humorous and poignant photographic collection of playful brassieres, created from a wide and wild variety of common objects. Conceptually and visually connected to the art of the readymade (art made from everyday objects), and to the art of Renaissance master Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who created imaginative portraits from fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish and books, Spielman-Peldo’s work is a contemporary twist on the genre of still life. The artist creates remarkably clever images that appeal to both sexes and virtually all age groups.
This body of work was created to support women fighting breast cancer, highlighting this serious issue while raising awareness. An accompanying book, published as part of this project, will be launched during the run of the show. The exhibition and opening are sponsored in part by Sanford Health.
Artist Reception, Thursday, October 18, 5 – 8 p.m. Free. Gallery talk with Meg Spielman Peldo and Dr. Shelby Terstriep at 6 p.m. Live music, appetizers, and a cash bar will be available.
