A series of work exploring white collar crime of the past decade in America.
Kuhl & Leyton's collaborative work explores the American and global culture of crime and its relationship to fame, media and the bizarre. The solo exhibition at Grand Central Art Center marks the US premiere of their new body of work, which focuses on the subject of white-collar crimes. The artists draw inspiration from both obscure and popular subjects in the news, on the Internet and television. Their primary medium is tape on paper. [seriously...tape...it is pretty cray cray]
Subjects of the current body of work include: Jack Abramoff, Martha Stewart,Bernie and Ruth Madoff, Enron, and Allen Stanford and the former chief regulator of his Antigua bank.
Brad Kuhl and Monique Leyton were both born in Miami, Florida in 1983. They grew up in Miami and met at Design and Architecture Senior High School. They began collaborating in college at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. They currently divide there time between Beijing, China and the United States.
