False Front presents Michael Reinsch's I Have Nothing To Say To You
. This A-frame-inspired sculptural installation reacts against the information conveyed in commercial signage: "There is no means to its end. Where as a merchant's public display of commodity is made prominent and to the point, alternatively Reinsch's installation offers a cleverly nondescript, attentive response to the viewer's - art patron or everyday shopper - aesthetic sense, and sometimes crave, of grandeur."
Opening reception • 7-10pm • March 4
Closing reception / artist talk • 12-3pm • March 26

Nationale presents Ilyas Ahmed's The Endless Intermission
