EXHIBITION: SUBSTRATE / Printed Matter from the Rustbelt

SUBSTRATE  /  may refer to:
  1. substratum: a layer of something (such as soil or rock) that is under another layer
  2. the natural environment in which an organism lives, or the surface or medium on which an organism grows or is attached
  3. the material on which a process is conducted
  4. the base material onto which print ink is applied, such as paper, textile, fabric, plastic, etc

With the decline of large scale manufacturing in post-industrial America, there is a desire by many to reclaim small scale production. The past several years has seen a rise of independent publishing across the United States, with increased visibility and availability of zines and art books, and a DIY ethos which embraces exploration, technique and radical production methods. SUBSTRATE explores the politics and poetics of printed matter in the Rust Belt, asking the viewer to think about the relationship between landscape, the material environment, and print.

Curated by Ben Gaydos, Detroit-based designer, filmmaker, artist, Professor with the University of Michigan, Flint, art department, and co-founder of the interdisciplinary design firm goodgood. October 24th-December 7th. Opening reception: Friday, October 24th, 6-9 p.m., free.
