PRESS RELEASE In Ruins: Work by Julian Montague June 5th – July 26th, 2014 Opening reception: Thursday, June 5th 6:30-9:30pm BT&C Gallery launches In Ruins, an exhibition of new work by artist and graphic designer Julian Montague, on Thursday, June 5th with a reception from 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm. This exhibition is the first in the Gallery’s new home at 1250 Niagara Street in Buffalo. Julian Montague is known for his photography, design and installation work. In Ruins presents work that is an extension of Montague’s ongoing project entitled Secondary Occupants, which explores the relationship of insects and animals with architecture and, ultimately, how their observed behaviors conceptually relate to psychological, human models. Montague’s latest iteration in this project focuses on the spider and, through his stunning macro photographic work and subtle works on paper, presents the insect as an elusive presence at once unseen and omnipresent. Montague has exhibited throughout the Unites States, Canada, and Europe. In 2013 alone, Montague was featured in exhibitions in Buffalo, NY; New York, NY; Wichita, KS; Scottsdale, AZ; Metz, France (solo exhibition); and Berlin, Germany. His work is in the collections of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Burchfield Penney Arts Center, The Margulies Collection at the Warehouse, and The Norton Museum of Art.
BT&C’s June 5th opening kicks-off a collaboration with additional organizations in the neighborhood—namely Resurgence Brewing Company and arts collaborative, Sugar City. The artful happening will include temporary urban interventions by local artists, an outdoor experimental video display with a light show and ambient live music performance, and an open house with curated displays at Sugar City.
