Gower takes a conceptual approach to the study of the socioeconomics of cold war architecture and urbanism, employing a prodigious sculptural aesthetic. Gower’s research program is driven by a search for progressive models within postwar modernism, and results in works that often repurpose 20th century art history, including its forms and its failures. With a sophisticated engagement with minimalism, language-based practices, and appropriation, the artist produces sensual objects that speak of our shared political past. Gower’s residency features a new project about architect and urbanist Victor Gruen’s masterplan for Tehran. The project includes 12 prints using a combination of letterpress, woodcut, intaglio, pigment, and screen print techniques. It is produced in collaboration with Ben Duncan of Malaspina Printmakers, Peter Braune of New Leaf Editions, David Clifford of Black Stone Press, Jessica Schauteet of Kroma Acrylics, and Lee Plested of Griffin Art Projects. The project is presented by Monte Clark Gallery.
