BEASTS OF ENGLAND
OPENING FRIDAY, APRIL 8, 7 P.M. TO 12 A.M.
EXHIBITION APRIL 8 TO MAY 7

The Beasts of England is an installation by artist and No Kings Collective co-founder Brandon Hill. This site-specific installation is a modern day interpretation of George Orwell’s classic tale, Animal Farm. Through the lens of a common farm, the classic examined nationality, ethnicity, poverty, elitism, heritage, culture, politics, equality, and housing. Playing with perception, depth and materiality, Hill creates large scale works across multiple forms of media to construct an experience that is representative of the dualities and complex relationships Orwell illustrates on the farm.

HUSTLE 2.0
OPENING FRIDAY MAY 13 7 TO 11P.M.
EXHIBITION MAY 13 TO JUNE 5

Hustle 2.0 is a reincarnation of the artist collective’s show in 2015 celebrating the city’s artistic core, providing commentary on the current state of working artists. This sophomore project will boast a design-oriented showcase of typography, 2D works, multimedia, sculpture and prints from a community of local working artists.
