Louis Zoellar Bickett: Selections from the Art Collection Installation View

Institute 193 presents Louis Zoellar Bickett: Selections from the Art Collection, a visual testament to the artist’s deep connections to the Lexington art community. Over the years, Bickett has supported and encouraged a number of artists as friend, mentor, patron and collector. The artist has further transformed the collected artworks through the action of labeling, indexing, and assimilating them into his own all-consuming Archive. Most artworks receive their own label and appear in one of Bickett’s various indexes. Some are carefully wrapped in craft paper while others are placed within sealed Ziplock bags or covered in black opaque plastic. In some cases, the object is only identifiable by its label, having been completely digested by the artist’s meticulous process.
