Substrate: Printed Material from the Rust Belt, Opens October 24th

Mark your calendar and be sure to join us at (SCENE) Metrospace, 110 Charles Street, on Friday, October 24th, from 6-9 p.m. for the opening of our final exhibition of the year.

The exhibition runs until December 14th.

The exhibition is called SubstrateWith 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 Do-It-Yourself 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.

Substrate is guest-curated by Ben Gaydos. Ben is a Detroit-based designer, filmmaker, artist, co-founder of the interdisciplinary design firm goodgood, and a professor with the University of Michigan, Flint, art department.
