Farrah Karapetian's Extra Credit, 2020, is included in the exhibition "Transformations: Living Room -> Flea Market -> Museum -> Art" at The Wende Museum in Los Angeles.
The exhibition presents the metamorphosis of household and consumer goods from objects of everyday life to items in a museum collection, by way of flea markets, and invites contemporary artists to position them in the here and now. Countless people who lived through socialism discarded the household and consumer items they had lived with and loved or hated for many years, as they finally had access to higher-standard goods. Huge chunks of socialist material culture ended up in dumping grounds or flea markets.
On view from October 4, 2020 to April 11, 2021.
