Detroit: A Brooklyn Case Study

I have my work in this show: Detroit a Brooklyn Case Study.

DETROIT: A BROOKLYN CASE STUDY opens Thursday, January 20th with a reception 5:00pm – 8:30pm.
On view through May 27 2011
Pacific Design Center #B208
8687 Melrose Avenue | West Hollywood
DETROIT: A BROOKLYN CASE STUDY, SUPERFRONT’s first exhibit of 2011, considers Detroit both as a specific city and as a set of circumstances. This group exhibit invites not so much a comparison of Detroit and Brooklyn but a calculated misreading. How and where might the logics or circumstances of Detroit operate in Brooklyn, or vice versa? Through cartography, documentary video, architectural proposals, photography, painting and other media, Detroit: A Brooklyn Case Study explores urban typology and local specificity between places both known and imagined.
The exhibit includes works by: Dana BellBrent BirnbaumBerenika BoberskaBrennan Buck,Lynn CazabonSara CondePhilip DembinskiJill DesiminiEllen E. DonnellySebastian FischbeckDavid FreelandDavid KarleErin KasimowAmanda MatlesBlake MorrisJuan Alberto NegroniPaper Tiger TVKaleena QuinnJon StevensBrett Van AalsburgAnusha VenkataramanMargi WeirAudra Wolowiec and others.

My art has been included in this Architecture and Art publication by Superfront with essays by Mitch Mc Ewen et al. (my paintings on pages 54 and 55)
