Julian Gilbert-Davis: Neighbors at Locust Projects

Sat 15 Jul, 2017

For this year Locust Projects’ LAB MFA exhibition, artist Julian Gilbert-Davis will develop and exhibit his project Neighbors. Approaching the work as an extended research project, Gilbert-Davis will reconstruct elements from his polling place at Rutgers (a local high school) and Locust Projects’ nearest voting location (a neighborhood church). With consideration to the civic ritual of voting, Neighbors investigates the polling place as shrine and public commons, examining the democratic ideals and institutions it sustains.

Julian Gilbert-Davis (b. Chicago, IL) received his BFA from CalArts in 2008 and is currently pursuing his MFA at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ. He previously served as a lecturer at the Yale School of Art. His work has been exhibited at MOCA Tucson, AZ; Bakehouse Art Complex, Miami, FL; the Zimmerli Museum, New Brunswick, NJ; and the New Haven Museum, New Haven, CT, among others.
