Curated by The Frank’s Chief Curator Joshua Carden, the new exhibition features the work of artists Nestor Arenas, Yves Gabriel, Kx2, Devora Perez and Norman Silva along with a video piece by Layne Hinton and Chris Foster. Each of the artists employ a minimalist tendency while engaging the viewer with work grounded in industrialization, gentrification and/or the notion of change through industrial materials.

“Oftentimes, in urban environments, the viewer is met with a combination of aesthetics and materials. New Industry seeks to contextualize this industrial aesthetic as an artistic result of urbanization,” said Carden. “We are excited to showcase the unique work that these artists have created and hope that this compelling exhibition leaves visitors with a new perspective on the world around them.”
