9. JULIAN MONTAGUE
The artist's distinct visual language in mural form dramatically changes the hallway. A series of monumental paintings as a sequence of towers animating the blank spaces between the doorways were begun last Fall for the inaugural PLAY/GROUND. This year, through selective destruction, and further painting, the forms have swelled, expanded, and crept around the corner. The result is an immersive, dynamic engagement with the space.
