WESTERN VALUES: Re-thinking the ‘Old West’

Everything you say can and will be held against you
A new solo exhibition by artist Brian Singer which confronts the current state of American society. Informed by his views growing up half-Japanese with a mother who was interned during WWII, Singer deconstructs and reassembles recognizable and culturally-charged objects to create new contexts that expose, address, and reframe some of the most contentious social issues of our time.
