To celebrate the opening of artist Chirstopher Cannon's new installation in the Frick Center, Founders Lounge, a recpetion and artist's talk will be on Tuesday, October 22, from 4:30–6:30 p.m. The artist talk will begin at 5:00 p.m.
The work of artist Christopher Cannon utilizes elements of architectural design, dealing primarily with environmental and physical changes to urban landscapes. In his recent "Detroit" series he explores the effects of memory by combining the vague idealized recollections of his youth in conjunction with the reality of both personal and public landmarks. His screen-prints, drawings, collages and most recently custom toys all deal with social, economic and political topics. His current project “Mash-Ups of the Multiverse” involves the re-cycling of used toys to create custom characters.
