Mike Osborne: Federal Triangle
a solo virtual exhibition presented by Trinity University's Department of Art & Art History
Federal Triangle is a timely series of black-and-white photographs shot in and around Washington, DC. The project looks at the city – its sites of power and its margins – from a perspective that speaks to our current iteration of "the paranoid style." Titled after the government complex wedged between the Capitol and the White House, Osborne’s photographs depict the city as “a kind of bureaucratic Bermuda Triangle—an impenetrable place of mystery, danger, and disorientation.” The virtual solo exhibition will include a curated selection of images as well as supporting text by the artist, and will be posted to the Neidorff Gallery’s social media platforms. Access to the virtual gallery content will be open to the public.
