Carter Kustera with Solomon Projects at Scope


The world unfortunately continues to grind out a rich load of subjects for Carter Kustera's singular art. This piece, exhibited by Atlanta's Solomon Projects at Scope, pretends to offer fashion advice, but it's really about the fashion of violence. Unfortunately the text is not legible in this picture, but you can use your imagination if you check out one an earlier, New York show, and this excerpt from the Atlanta gallery's press release:

At once poignant and witty, "Fabulous Anger" is a provocative body of work that explores the commodification of violence. Combining image and text in a format familiar to advertising -- the fashion layout -- Kustera takes a critical look at the way violence is presented through the media.
