Stark contrast of Allan McCollum’s Plaster Surrogates, National Gallery of Art East Building, Washington, D.C.
From the National Gallery of Art website: Allan McCollum (1944- ) is an American artist, best known for his Surrogates — multiple, related objects installed en masse as anonymous stand-ins for paintings or sculptures…. Plaster Surrogates (1982/1989) was the last large grouping available. McCollum conceived its 480 elements in 1982, then cast them and painted the black “images” within “mats” and “frames” in 1989.
