Artist’s reception: Sunday, November 11, 2018
2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Doug Edge gained attention in the 1960's with a witty and inventive body of plastic and resin sculptures. In 1972 he co-curated (along with Judy Chicago and DeWain Valentine) "The Last Plastics Show" at CalArts. This historically important show surveyed and summed up the era, though with, in hindsight, an exaggerated sense of finality. Alongside the plastics material, Edge also produced a series of photo-conceptual artworks featuring the artist in the guise of various alter-egos. Like his resin sculptures, Edge continues to develop and extend the series of photo-conceptual images to this day. These two sides of this artist's notably complex practice are featured in the exhibition "Doug Edge: New and Vintage Artworks" at As Is.
