Feral Factory’s four-month Residency at the Crash begins with an exhibition for the Month of Photography. Artists Armando Martinez and Shana Cordon present a collection of images which illuminate the themes of urban collage and the collage city.

Exploring the Collage City
An Exhibition of Photography
Martinez’s photography exposes the sublime in the everyday lives of his subjects, a cross-section of urban dwellers who represent the heterogeneity of cities. Cordon’s work abstracts the image of the city, both reducing it to impressions and revealing the accidental collisions of texture and intention which exist in cities at every scale. Martinez exposes us to urban life; Cordon, to the marks this life leaves behind.
This exhibition draws its questions from the urban theories of Colin Rowe and Fred Koetter. While Martinez and Cordon set the stage, the exhibition will continue with three more shows through the end of June, 2017.

Join us for tea and conversation with our featured artists. Then, from 8pm–8:20pm enjoy “Denver, Let’s Talk Art,” with comedian and storyteller Andrew Curtis Forlines. The featured artists will be interviewed, along with a host of characters played by some of Denver’s finest actor and improvisors.
Art Salon, Tue. 7th March, 7pm: The Collage City.
(Limited seating; must reserve ticket)
Our salons are an opportunity to enjoy art in an intimate setting, along with talks and discussion. They’re learning opportunities, but also chances for all attendees to share their ideas, thoughts, and experiences. Most importantly, we’re there to talk about the art, and art’s importance in the world today.
