Curated by writer and art critic David Ebony, Metropolis offers mediation on contemporary urban existence, through the architectural environment, implied social interaction, and activities of the populace inhabiting these vital centers. While frequently alluring, many of the works in the show reveal a conflicted reality underneath their seeming orderliness. For example the people in Jules de Balincourt’s seemingly bucolic urban park turn out to be protesters. The exhibit offers a fresh discourse on urban existence considered from a cool, contemplative distance.
