Straight Shot, 2015 Exhibition at MASS gallery, Austin, TX
For the exhibition members of The Front collaborated on a giant inflatable shotgun house that was shown outside of MASS gallery in Austin, TX while our individual works were shown inside. Affectionately known as a “shotgun” house for their linear approach to room design, these dwellings hold architectural connections to the Afro-Caribbean diaspora. In the past, the shotgun home had a specific connotation to the working class and to renters. This has dramatically changed in the current urban housing void.The Front utilized the form of the shotgun house to emphasize each of our roles in the process of running a collective, while maintaining our singular identities as artists.
