[Last Chance] Frank Magnotta 'Co-Patriot' @ Junior Projects

This weekend is the last chance to check out Frank Magnotta’s incredible exhibition at Junior Projects in New York. Magnotta’s intricately rendered graphite portraits begin with layered and morphed composites of modern logos culled from the mid 1960s and 70s, the artist’s formative years. These initial skeletons, assembled digitally, create the framework for his masterfully drawn, contorted busts. Built into each unique portrait are the visible effects—detrimental, elevating, or otherwise—of the institutional power(s) the logos represent on the individual psyche.  Frank Magnotta 'Co-Patriot' is open until March 8, 2015 at Junior Projects, 139 Norfolk St., New York.
