We are proud to present Dana Depew's first major solo show in Cleveland in over three years. Experience recent sculptural, two-dimensional and video-based works produced from reclaimed and found objects. "Assholes and Elbows" refers to working hard at a task. It originated in farm work. If a group of field hands is busy and bent over picking crops, then a supervisor looking out over the group would see nothing but "assholes and elbows."
"I grew up on a farm in Medina, Ohio with eight siblings. There were always daily chores and tasks we each had to do. My father would always say 'Get out there and do your chores and all I want to see is assholes and elbows.'"
Free and open to the public.
