"Take Two: Contemporary Work by 13 International Artists"
2001-04-26 until 2001-06-24
Ottawa Art Gallery
Ottawa, ON, CA Canada

Take Two probes the legacies of revolution of the late 1960s and 1970s–artistic, cultural and social experimentation, political and economic upheaval. It brings together a selection of works that enlist an array of media and approaches to explore the interactions between two eras constructed and presented as revolutionary: the sloganizing 1960s and the globalizing present. Artists included in the exhibtion are Michael Blum, Tony Cokes, Tacita Dean, Sam Durant, Jill Godmillow, Douglas Gordon, Jinhan Ko, Les LeVeque, Glenn, Ligon, Susan Schuppli, Dennis Tourbin, Christopher Williams, and X-PRZ.

Take Two offers alternatives to the parallel refashioning of these two eras in consumer culture, and their strategic performance as signifiers of upheaval, experimentation, freedom, and technology in popular culture. The exhibition also underscores a broader cultural phenomenon and contributes to an expanded field of cultural practice that exceeds expected notions of artistic influence, political nostalgia or, as some would have us believe, just the latest marketing strategies. Take Two explores, critiques, and reconfigures the current retrofitting of the late 1960s and its complementary insurrections in contemporary debate.
