​Current Exhibit

Image of an abstract cityscape in gray and red tones."Quinn's Wanderings: Of Books and Cities"
- Steve Valev
August 18 - October 15, 2014

Born in Bulgaria, Valev has lived in Phoenix for the last 23 years. While his background is in architecture and urban design, his interests are in the ways that those fields can engage topics of politics, sociology, economics and everyday life.  Less about a particular resolution, the work is an entry into trying to understand these issues. Many times the work is a kind of catalog precariously linking a network of ideas, references and realities. More information in the Events Calendar.
