The exhibit features artists that comment on luxury, artificiality, consumption, ornament, and the line between the beautiful and the grotesque. Whether a wall installation composed of silver reflective woven strips of paper, polymer works that look like banquet centerpieces, or extravagant, colorful jewelry, these artists investigate contemporary cultural, social, and historical ideas. 

Many thanks to Lena Vigna for including Kate's designs.
