Dirk Skreber: days before
May 02-Jun 23
In his new, mostly oil paint on aluminum honeycomb works, Dirk Skreber draws a line from his youthful expeditions through to Pripyat’s deserted territory and the cinematic depictions of Tarkovsky, directly to contemporary painting. Simultaneously Skreber nods to the long history of artistic representations of urban decay that confront society’s faith in human perseverance. Opening Reception: Wed, May 2, 6–8pm.
