Art Outside the Lines

If you don't believe that art's intersection of popular culture forever changed the way the world sees, embraces and creates art, then you may not enjoy Fort Worth artist Christopher Blay's new exhibition Art Depreciation 1301: Art Before and After Culture. Through painting, sculpture and photography, Blay creates works meant to blur the already fuzzy boundaries between art and culture. Or, as Blay recently wrote, "It responds to the philosophical implications of camera culture and the effects of images that transcode rather than translate information between object and viewer." For Art Depreciation 1301, Blay plays a modern Dr. Frankenstein as the multimedia artist stitches up the two worlds, offering up works such as "Samuel L. Jackson Pollock," "Steely Dan Flavin" and "Carl Andre the Giant." Art Depreciation 1301 runs through October 15 at Ro2 Art DOWNTOWN, 110 N. Akard St., on the ground floor of The Kirby Building.

Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Oct. 12. Continues through Oct. 15, 2011
