LATE SUMMER BLUES is an exhibition of collage-based works in video, photography, and sculpture that reflects on our collective impulse to reconfigure and manipulate the landscape – both urban and rural – as a means of escape from the compression of summer in the city. Coupled with the desire to find respite from the concrete hardscapes that permeate our vision and movement, Late Summer Blues also suggests an imminent inversion of desire. As the middle of summer passes, a premature sense of nostalgia for the end of summer as an end of freedom comes into focus. How do we spend the last days of summer?
The cross-pollination between comics and high art, which began in the early 20th century, also fed the extraordinary explosion of graphic novels and comics in the past several decades.

Moderated by John Carlin.

The title of the exhibition, Re: Empire, refers to an article published in Newsweek this past March by Bret Easton Ellis, concerning the rise of a new breed of celebrity. In the article, "Charlie Sheen is Winning," Ellis divides culture into two categories, the traditional Empire and the new guard - Post-Empire. Post-Empire exists within the system but with knowing disrespect and casual humor that differentiates it from Empire's solemn self-importance. Opening Thursday, June 30, 6 - 8 PM.
