“Détournement: Signs of the Times,” a group show curated by writer and critic Carlo McCormick at Jonathan Levine Gallery (previewed here), recently opened in NYC to a packed crowd. Featuring new works from artists Shepard Fairey, Dan Witz and Ron English among others, based on the idea of détournement, or a play on signage meant to subvert the original intent of messages we perceive daily, the bright works are both sharp and humorous in their satirical poke at mainstream authoritative and corporate imagery. Take a peek at opening night photos from Adam Wallacavage.
