On January 12, 2014 the group exhibition for Future Tenant “SHAME OF THE CITY: Deconstructing and reconstructing comic book narratives” closed.
This exhibition featured 23 artists from all over the country (and Canada). Every artist was assigned a page from the “Iron Man” comic I have been working with and was asked to make new work inspired by the original artwork.
The artists I asked to be in this exhibition are: Adam Leestma, Amze Emmons, Andrew Kozlowski, Sam Boehm, Daniel Maw, Dylan Collins, Erika Adams, Geo Sipp, Jasen Lex, Jason Urban, Jennifer Anderson, Jim Rugg, Joseph Galbreath, Joseph Lupo, Luke Novel, Matt DiClemente, Michael Krueger, Nathan Meltz, Peter Bugg, Randy Bolton, Ryan Miller, Tate Foley, Tim Dooley
