The New Brutalists, at Parallel Gallery.
This group show of works in two and three dimensions by Samuel T. Adams, Frank Zadlo, Leah Raintree and Guy Nelson referenced not brutality per se but rather Brutalism—a mid-20th-century architectural trend that fostered structural legibility through self-revelatory implements and layouts—by bringing together artists whose process-heavy practices are themselves processed before yielding eventual products, whose methodologies disclose underlying forms while obscuring traces of manually generative modes. It was also possible that a certain hindmilk-fed bloat of quasi-organica on the floor held the conceptual key to its surroundings, but that question was never settled. (Full review here.)
