As the economic health of modernized nations has become more and more dependent on the production and distribution of commodities, developed countries have found themselves drowning under the weight of consumer goods. Many visual artists have found this situation as an opportunity to consider the consequences of a global economy and the possibilities for creative outlets. Whether using new or discarded household objects, these artists use manufactured materials and wares to create their work. Supply and Demand considers the work of these artists, whose photography, sculpture, and installations provide us with moments to contemplate the necessity of the things we think we cannot live without. by Lisa Dent, CCAD adjunct faculty and associate curator of contemporary art, Columbus Museum of Art.
