Black Cube Alumni Exhibition
Valley Boy is a solo exhibition by Detroit-based artist Jon P. Geiger, and the artist’s largest solo exhibition to date. Valley Boy features a new body of work that continues Geiger’s interest in both meditative and physical landscapes. Geiger transforms the gallery space into a reflection of the scenery and sensibilities of the artist’s adopted home – the San Luis Valley. In addition, the works pull from the artist’s experience as a Black Cube artist fellow. During his fellowship Geiger created a large-scale installation titled ROAM, a 26-foot-long neon billboard that traveled to five sites in Colorado over the duration of two years. Valley Boy reflects this experience through the artist’s latest works such as The Approach, a large-scale work references a boulder field or rock wall and also references the dimensions of ROAM.
Black Cube is a nomadic contemporary art museum that begins each project with artist’s ideas. Every pop-up exhibition is a part of the Artist Fellowship, a year-long program that guides artists through the production of a site-specific pop up exhibition, while providing one-on-one professional development support. The Alumni Program is a continuation of the Artist Fellowship, in which our organization works with our previous artist fellows on a project that helps support the development of their practice.
