For this exhibition, artist Dominique Pétrin will turn the gallery into an all-encompassing work of art. The exhibit will be comprised of hundreds of silkscreened prints featuring Greco-Roman ornamentation, Music Hall theatrics, and Baroque kitsch motifs layered to create an immersive and visually cacophonous environmental experience.
