Andy Yoder: Overboard

October 23, 2020 - March 6, 2021

“The Great Shoe Spill of 1990,” an incident in which five shipping containers containing 80,000 Nike sneakers were lost at sea, inspired Yoder’s newest sculptural installation. Nike’s iconic Air Jordan 5 sneaker, introduced in the same year as the spill, became the template for Yoder’s showroom of designer sneakers. Drawing attention to the impact of consumer culture on the environment, the work is at once serious and hilarious.
