MH Gallery Show: Camp Along

Jul 20 — Sept 5

Motor House Resident Artists are responding to this year’s Artscape theme, “Camp”, in our latest gallery exhibition. ‘Camp’ has been defined as a temporary structure, site or a place of recreation. It has also been defined as an aesthetic style and sensibility that regards something to be appealing due to its bad taste, comic, ironic, or provocative stance. In 1964 Susan Sontag’s essay “Notes on Camp”,  created a literary sensation that gave definition to a new aesthetic phenomenon. It paved the way for disruption, resistant, alternative points of view from communities that had been dismissed as not critical to the culture and character of more acceptable modalities in America.
