Triple Candie is please to present an exhibition based on Dexter Sinister’s “The Plastic Arts,” an installation originally presented at Gallery 400 at the University of Illinois, Chicago, September 7 to October 23, 2010. Our exhibition presents a text-portrait exhibited in Chicago alongside three Triple Candie-induced iterations of itself, all the progressive results of subjecting the text to a graphic design filter that has abstracted into crystalline fragments. Dexter Sinister was not consulted on or involved with this exhibition, which contains none of their actual work.
