For All The Wrong Reasons


Group portrait - clockwise Rachel Hoffman, John McGrane, Matthew Guest, Mikel Durlam, Jon Peterson, and Ethan Kruszka.


May 28 – July 17, 2004

This loosely defined group of area artists describes itself as an “uncomfortable alliance” – ambitious, obsessed, over-reaching, critical and self-effacing. Each member is engaged in radically different vocabularies and strategies – with a preoccupation of “badness”. The group’s sub-composition is made up of “the Fluff Constructivists” – Mikel Durlam, Ethan Kruszka and Jon Peterson; others include Matthew Guest, Rachel Hoffman and John McGrane.
