> DESCRIPTION

From the collapse of Manhattan's imposing skyline, to the urban planning failure in New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward, to the slow creeping decay brought on by suburban abandonment in the face of the current housing crisis, the sustained imagery of the last ten years has been the complete unsustainability of our once proud constructs: the buildings and the infrastructure, but the social, economic, and political systems that they represent, as well. The thirteen contemporary artists participating in ARCHITECTURAL DEINFORCEMENT produce architectonic ciphers in various mediums - paintings, sculptures, and assemblages - against the backdrop of our current physical and psychological drosscape, exploring the inherent foundations of contemporary social and environmental collapse, but also the ways we might conceptually reorganize our constructed environments, going forward, in response to such systemic failings.
