WORK AS ART and The Primitives' Revenge
Josh T Franco
WORK AS ART and The Primitives' Revenge are two new series of works created for Josh T Franco's first solo show at Studio SoHy. These new works in watercolor, drawing, and handwriting respond to the question: But, like, what do art historians do?
Josh T Franco is an artist with an art history PhD. He often builds or suggests environments that invite haunting by ancestors and disincarnate peers. Enfleshed folks are invited into these settings to share stories with Franco and make something new together. He is devoted to handwriting, printed text, and beeswax as mediums that can command visual attention and physical space while also transmitting and preserving knowledge between generations. Franco is guided by the understanding that art history is made by hand.
