We want to congratulate Brett Amory on his current exhibition American Monologue at the Ft. Wayne Museum of Art. Amory has shown with Thinkspace Gallery over the years with solo exhibitions, a notable installation at 20 Years Under the Influence of Juxtapoz, and a current work in NEXUS showing at the Brand Library & Art Center. For all those interested in viewing the work from American Monologue, please contact Thinkspace Gallery for a PDF copy.
Visit Juxtapoz.com for a full write-up on Amory’s latest exhibition at the Ft. Wayne museum of art.
“Amory’s new work is based on the people and places of Fort Wayne, and is accompanied by a large installation that challenges what it means to be an “All-American City” and the concept of the American Dream. The installation will be constructed here during the month of November, allowing the public to watch Amory work.” – Juxtapoz
The Fort Wayne Museum of Art will host Invisible College, a group exhibition co-curated by Andrew and Shawn Hosner of Los Angeles’ Thinkspace Gallery, and Josef Zimmerman of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. Opening July 11th and on view until September 27th, the exhibition will feature new and representative works by 46 artists belonging to the New Contemporary movement. Dedicated to the energy and strength of its growing visibility and recognition, Invisible College explores the aesthetics of a movement that has devised its own course; one that has been largely defined outside of institutional contexts.
Here is a taste of the artists heading to Indiana and their works in progress or detail shot of work.

A quote that has stuck with you? “Talent, don’t bother about wether or not you have it. Just assume that you do, and forget about it. Talent is a word we use after someone has become accomplished.” -Richard Schmid
