The Expected

The word ‘unexpected” refers to something that is not likely to happen and in art, one can use any medium to create unexpected artworks. Throughout art history there are artists that took the art industry by surprise when they placed their concept or idea above the physical artwork.
 
Piero Manzoni, an artist from the 1960s, is a great example of an artist doing the unexpected. In his  artwork, “Artist’s Shit” , he canned 90 cans with his own feces. He was making a bold statement that as an artist, each time an artwork is created, a part of one’s self was given away. Manzoni literary gave away a part of himself which was an unexpected way to substantiate that  statement.
 
In this exhibition, a group of artists give us an UNEXPECTED twist to their artworks.
