John Brodie at Milepost 5


John Brodie had a room filled with large collages at Milepost 5, where we made this short video. I’ve always like his work – we showed some of his paintings at Lovelake in 2003. Even these collages, made with billboard bits, paint, Mylar and vinyl have a lot in common with the paintings back then. Of course collage takes time to arrange and rearrange, but they still seem spontaneous. Milepost 5 has invited about 30 artists and organizations to take over rooms and install all kinds of shows.
