CURRENT

Ryan Hawk: Surface Topologies

The Museum of Human Achievement

September 24 - October 2, 2016

A pop-up show of video and sound works by Ryan Hawk. "This exhibition marks the culmination of one-year of research from Hawk into the material history and physical properties of asphalt. Hawk’s fascination has led him to consider asphalt from its source -- in its natural, liquidized form -- to its expansive re-materializations and industrial applications."
