A newly commissioned site specific installation which occupies both of Alma Enterprises' gallery spaces.
The show marks the launch of Alma's new expanded gallery space and continues our interest in commissioning works that interrogate ideologies for systems of living. The Objectivist Studio is a work that uses texts from the writings of Ayn Rand (1905-1982) as its starting point. Rand was the author of the novels 'Atlas Shrugged' and 'The Fountainhead' and the founder of 'Objectivism' - a philosophy that holds that 'the purpose of one's life is the pursuit of one's own happiness or rational self-interest.' She expressed these ideas in her fiction and in publications such as 'The Objectivist Newsletter', 'The Objectivist', and 'The Ayn Rand Letter', and her books 'Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology' and 'The Virtue of Selfishness'.
