Joe Fig: Other Artists

October 15, 2022–January 15, 2023

A DAI-exclusive Focus Exhibition, Joe Fig: Other Artists features miniature models, paintings and photography by American author and artist Joe Fig (American, born 1968). 

An admirer of art production and viewing, Fig is an author and artist who explores artists’ studios and museum galleries as sources of inspiration and the subjects of his art. 

From the paint-splattered barn of Jackson Pollock to the minimalist studio of Barnett Newman, Fig explores the process of making art, the working lives of artists, and the spaces where they work, what has been called the “preprovenance” of art. He recreates or imagines the artists at work, comparing the studios with the pristine museum environments where works are shown. Fig’s work is enjoyable on many levels, both serious and playful, all made in painstaking realism on a diminutive scale.
