Today in Detroit: two friends and formerly featured in Franchise artists have openings. Bradley Ward at Louis Buhl and Tyrrell Winston at Library Street. If you’re in the area check them out, details below, congrats to both.
January 15 - March 3, 2022
Louis Buhl & Co. is pleased to announce a forthcoming exhibition with Houston-based artist Bradley Ward, titled Field, House, opening January 15, 2022. Through a multitude of media, Ward explores the modalities and poly-characterization of survival within the Black experience. Emphasizing domains in which rhythm has matriculated through the Black body, often in labor, there is also space for the extraordinary in the confluence of Black leisure. Often using sports and performance to reinforce this median within Black life, Ward focuses on the magic of Black harmony and resonance, creating context for both through portraiture and overlapping figuration respectively.
January 15, 2022 — March 3, 2022
Library Street Collective is pleased to present Hail Mary, a solo exhibition of new works by Brooklyn-based artist Tyrrell Winston, opening Saturday, January 15, 2022. Originally from California, Winston is a self-taught artist whose career began with commentary centered on metropolitan life. Through obsessive collecting, organizing, and reconfiguring objects, his artwork manifested into sculptures that solely featured discarded material such as worn basketballs and left behind cigarette butts. Yet, the conceptual framework delved deeply into the complexities of memory, nostalgia, and the permanence of energy within the collected pieces.
