Go for Baroque: Opulence and Excess in Contemporary Art

May 22 – September 4, 2016

This summer, RAM goes “glam” with exhibitions featuring artists who explore the decorative and excessive as well as things that gleam and shine.

Go for Baroque: Opulence and Excess in Contemporary Art features artists that comment on luxury, artificiality, consumption, ornament, and the line between the beautiful and the grotesque. Whether a wall installation composed of silver reflective woven strips of paper, polymer works that look like banquet centerpieces, or extravagant, colorful jewelry, these artists investigate contemporary cultural, social, and historical ideas.
