American Since 1980

Broooks Wenzel’s master’s thesis show for Sculpture and Expanded Practices, held in Trisolini Gallery March 12-16 2013 (hours are 12-5pm Tuesday through Saturday). The closing reception will be Friday the 15th of March, 7:13pm to 9:37pm.

Wenzel’s art encourages viewer participation at all stages and from all vantage points, from conception to realization, while critiquing the capitalism-enamored culture whose luxuries he enjoys. He employs a superhero of his own design to further the ends of an economy that thrives on mass consumption, even as he disrupts the mechanism of high-art economy by placing art pieces into the hands of the unsuspecting for the cost of a standard crayon.
