Since long, “the object” has been the centre of art-making practice. It has been the outcome or residue of the creative process and the focus of gallery display. Throughout the late 20th century, various art movements have questioned the centrality of the object. For example, since the 1960s, performance art has shifted the focus of art-making to the process itself. Conceptual art has privileged the idea. Today, there are many artists whose work reconsiders the object in a variety of ways. Their work cannot be easily categorized into existing art movements and sometimes includes an object while at the same time calling it into question.

Post Object presents five artists whose work puts forward different ways of thinking about and through the object: Michael Joo, Kimsooja, Samina Mansuri, Pushpamala N. and Ravinder Reddy. The exhibition combines performance, video, installation, and sculpture among other modes of art-making practice.
