Hot Art: Arnaud Maggs’ Schematic Vision

Arnaud Maggs' Max Ernst

OCTOBER 21 TO DECEMBER 4 Susan Hobbs Gallery is well known as a venue for artists working in the “conceptual” realm, where ideas often take precedence over visuals. Here, acclaimed photographer Arnaud Maggs’s latest series, The Dada Portraits, are both aesthetically pleasing and conceptually intriguing. Indulging his longtime interest in systems of classification and documentation, Maggs repurposes complex 19th-century carpenters’ diagrams as Cubist forms and Dadaist faces. The results impose new artistic meanings on the old blueprints, guiding the viewer to see beyond their original intent.
