Remembrancer

Project Space installation by Danny Giles

Feb 10 – Apr 02, 2017
Opening Reception Feb 10 6-10pm
During his January 2017 artist residency at Sector 2337, Danny Giles will incubate new works that explore everyday things whose implications for identity and political resistance are activated through spectacles of memory and provide allegories for transgression and self-determination. Thereafter, Giles will present new works in Sector 2337’s project in a solo exhibition titled “Remembrancer.”
