This exhibition is comprised of new work by three European artists who have not exhibited to any great extent in the US. Originally from Lille, Oslo and Copenhagen, respectively, all three are working outside of their nation of origin – Deroubaix and Kolding in Berlin, Einarsson in New York. This sets up a practice in which the artists are already trans-national and, to an extent, culturally unmoored and aesthetically nomadic. In addition, the works in this exhibition – wall paintings, sculptures, photocollages – are principally text-based, communicating almost exclusively in their inherited “international” language of English. It would also be safe to say that their artworks foster a critique of contemporary social structures, particularly the pervasive status of U.S. policies.

Zine culture, street posters, and low-grade reproductions provide the aesthetic base for the signage tactics used by these artists for their communications.
