The art critic and historian Tony Godfrey argues that "objects cannot just be objects in our society: we overload them instinctively with meanings and significance." The first Readymade, Marcel Duchamp's Bicycle Wheel, was exhibited in 1913 and was lambasted by the press. 100 years on the interplay between objects and people, and the way in which society consumes those objects, still fascinates both cultural historians and artists alike. 

PERIPHERIES | Readymades focuses on one artist, Catriona McLoughlin, who is currently GSA's Artist in Residence. Her installation is a playful culmination of spacial interactions, memory and trace.
