Monopoly, Mike Osborne and Haden Garrett's exhibition, revolves around the iconic board game and its historical connection to the Atlantic City street grid that served as its template. The exhibition includes 16 new color prints and artist's books from Mike Osborne and complementary furniture from Houston-based artist Haden Garrett.
Inspired in part by John McPhee's 1972 essay, "The Search for Marvin Gardens," Osborne's color photographs translate the game board's Mondrian-like map into a series of carefully seen color photographs that grapple with the city's past and present. This new series of furniture is based on Garrett's ongoing exploration of polyhedrons, and the broad ideas of geometry that connect them to universal harmonics, a subject that has long fascinated him.
