This event has ended.

This exhibition provides a unique dialogue between artists. Scott Avett is one of the two brothers in The Avett Brothers, a folk-rock band that originated in Concord, North Carolina. Avett expresses his ideas through multiple artistic mediums. These mediums include printmaking, painting, sculpture, songwriting, recording, and performing. Musically, Scott explores his dark side with his multi-faceted voice and affecting lyrics. His visual art further exposes his sense of wandering and loneliness. The paintings inform the music, but also transcend it with an intensity that is tougher and more arresting.
In the tradition of American realism, Crackerfarm continue their subversive inquest into the aesthetic and historical valuation of past and present cultures. Their traditional imagery is fused with the aggressiveness of a punk rock road movie. While touring with The Avett brothers for the past few years, Crackerfarm documented their friendship through photo and film. The work in the exhibition is a unique chronicle of this rapport. To highlight the similarities between both artists in the exhibition, the work focuses on Scott Avett. It shows a photographic production that remains consistent in an innate classicism, one that transforms routine appearances into something exceptional.
