Colby Bird: Cold End
July 11 - August 8, 2009
1619 East Cesar Chavez, Austin, TX 78702
Okay Mountain presents Cold End, "a solo exhibition by Colby Bird of sculpture, photography, video, and painting. Bird had created works that directly reference the ‘artist’s gesture’ as it relates to manual labor as a method of situating oneself on the continuum of global commerce and class. The defining of social strata through various modes of labor is a prominent theme in Bird’s work, from urban hustling, to blue-collar work, to art-making."
