This event has ended.

New works in aluminum, glass, plaster and cotton by Justin Beal take as a point of departure Le Corbusier’s first impressions of New York originally recounted in "When the Cathedrals were White: A Journey to the Country of Timid People," where American modernist architecture is derided as sinisterly superficial and cleanliness is described as a “national virtue.” As a whole Beal’s practice uses sculpture, photography, graphic design and installation to address the ides of repression, mistranslation, entropy and association that inevitably emerge within the grey areas between the logical systems of design, politics, advertising, language and aesthetics.
